Children use hands-on classroom-based activities as well as field observations to learn about plants and flowers, including how plants grow and reproduce. The wonderful variety of wildflowers at the Cemetery Park enables the pupils to see most stages of the plant life cycle first hand, as they encounter plants, flowers, fruits and seeds.
• Plants - Identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers.
• Plants - Explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (Air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant.
• Plants - Explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
