The Cycle of Life

In our Science lessons, we are learning about the different life cycles of plants and animals. The class have learnt about the differences for insects, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

Today we looked at plants in more detail and spent time looking at plants at their different stages around the school.


In the quiet area we found agapanthus that were yet to flower, onions that were beginning to flower and foxgloves that were covered in flowers and were being pollinated by bees. We discussed the importance of this for plants for them to make seeds and the need for them to reproduce.

We also saw some plants that had fruit such as strawberries and looked at the seeds of other plants including dandelions. It was interesting to see so many different stages of different plants’ life cycles around our school!
