our Big Question for this term is...

 

Science Homework Challenge...

For this homework challenge, you will need to go on a walk with family and friends. Collect a small sample of plants and flowers (check with a grown up before picking any plant or flower!).

 

Next, sketch the plant and use your senses to describe its properties (e.g. What colour are the petals? What does it smell like? etc.). 

 

Try to find out the name of the flower or plant and make comparisons between the samples you have collected. It would be lovely if the children were able to present these ideas in class.
