Brinsworth Manor Infant School


In the Summer term we are exploring the world of plants and investigating through a variety of experiments and hands on learning experiences how we can help plants to grow.


Objectives covered:

  • identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees
  • identify and describe the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees.
  • observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants
  • find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.


This science learning will link closely to the learning in Design and Technology in which the children are planning and developing their own garden areas.  We will cover many of the working scientifically skills (including establishing and monitoring an experiment and making observations and measurements) and will use mathematical and literacy based skills in our endeavours.

The Parts of a Plant (song for kids about flower/stem/leaves/roots)

The children have enjoyed learning this song about the parts of a plant/flower so much that they asked for this video to be shared on the school website.
