In science I would like you to continue to observe how your sunflower seed is growing.
- Has it germinated yet?
- Can you see any leaves?
- What purpose do the leaves have?
- Can you draw and write about the seed each week to track how it changes?
Also, I would like you to look at any flowers or trees that you have in your garden or when you go for a walk. Have a look at the clip on, BBC Bitesize called ‘What plants can you find outside?’
What plants can you find outside?
Watch your sunflower seed germinate.
Keep the cotton wool pad damp and when you see a shoot start to appear follow the link to BBC Bitesize KS1 Explanation – Growing seeds.
Observe carefully how your seed germinates, look at the leaves and roots begin to appear.
In your bag we sent home there is a graph where you can measure your plant as it grows.
From Wednesday we would like you to plant your seed in soil and then begin to measure your seedling on a daily basis. Wednesday 25th March is day 1 on your graph.
Chat with your family about how to measure and record the growth of your seed.
