Y5 Kew Gardens

Our Year 5 pupils enjoyed a great day of learning at Kew Gardens. The session they took part in helped them to:

  • Understand the characteristics of the plants studied.
  • Use this knowledge to make their own keys.
  • Give reasons for classifying plants based on certain characteristics.
  • Recognise that there is a great variety of living things and explain the importance of classification.

At Broadford we believe that pupils should understand what it means to 'work scientifically'. This includes being confident at:

  • Reporting and presenting findings from enquiries, including conclusions.
  • Gathering, recording, classifying and presenting data in a variety of ways to help answer questions.
  • Recording findings using simple scientific language, drawings, labelled diagrams, keys, bar charts, and tables.
  • Using straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings.

 It was amazing to look at the plants and see them under the microscopes. Inside they are so complicated!

I really liked learning the scientific names for the plants. Did you know that the names come from Latin?
