Topic

Our topic is Plants and Animals this half term. The children have been given the question: Can we grow dragons? It is based on our  class novel 'The Boy who grew dragons'. 

 

To enable them to grow their own dragons, they need to have a good understanding of:

- What are the parts of a plant?

- What do plants need to grow well?

- How is water important to plants?

- How do seeds travel?

- What do animals need to survive? 

- How are skeletons different? 

- How do our muscles help us?
