Making plant models in Year 2

Year 2 have made a great start to their new science topic, learning all about plants. To begin they showed all that they knew about plants on a spider diagram and then using a variety of collage materials they created a plant model. They tried hard to choose materials that were suitable for the different parts ie. a straw for the stem to show it is hollow and transfers water to other parts of the plant. They then labelled their model using the correct scientific vocabulary. We were impressed with the children’s prior knowledge and have displayed the lovely collages in the corridor window.
