We are now starting our topic on plants.  This week, take a look at the plants/trees in your garden/yard. If you have not got any plants in your yard, try and get some pots ready as we will be trying to do some growing!

Here is some information for parents :

Talk to a grown up about these things:  Do you know the difference between a seed and a bulb? What does a plant need to grow?

Watch this clip – What does a plant need to grow ? Where do plants grow best? (Clips from BBC bitesize KS1).
