Summer 1 Sow, Grow and Farm

Sow, Grow and Farm

In this project, we will learn about allotments in the United Kingdom and how the government encouraged people to have them to support food rationing during the Second World War.


We will learn about food webs and animal life cycles, including how living things are dependent on one another within a habitat.


We will investigate the different ways that plants reproduce and will dissect flowering plants to identify the different structures.


We will have the opportunity to learn about farming in the United Kingdom and the techniques used in modern farming, including the challenges that farmers face.


We will learn about the benefits of eating seasonally and about the pros and cons of importing food.


Finally, we will also learn about world farming and how the different climate zones affect where different foods can be grown.

Week 1- Week beginning 19.4.21

This week Pine Class have been learning ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprints in English and finding out what allotments are. We are focusing on writing non-chronological reports this term to inform people about the different ways in which plants reproduce. 


In science we have been looking at how animals reproduce and creating our own food chain and food web diagrams to explain how energy passes from the Sun to plants and then on to Primary consumers (herbivores) and then Secondary consumers and finally Tertiary consumers.

Here are some images of what we have been up to in class this week. You can see us learning about eggs and their anatomy.

Week 2- Week beginning 26.4.21

This week we have been learning all about plant reproduction and life cycles.


In English, we are planning to write non-chronological reports about how plants reproduce and have started collecting information, planning layouts and draft writing our introductory paragraphs. We will be completing these next week and will add some to the website for you to read.


In science, we have been looking at ways in which plants reproduce, by dissecting flowers to learn about the male and female reproductive systems. We learned how pollen (the male part of a flower) gets transferred to the ovules (the female parts) in order to fertilize it and create new seeds. 


We also looked at how plants reproduce asexually (having only one parent plant). When this happens the new plant will be identical to the parent.
