Pupils discuss with a partner/group what they think seeds need to help them to start growing. They also discuss and plan what they think they need to do in order to find out?
PoS - find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy
NaG – pupils learn that plants need a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy; pupils should be introduced to the requirements of plants for growth and survival
WS - pupils might work scientifically by: observing and recording, with some accuracy, the growth of a variety of plants as they change over time from a seed or bulb, or observing similar plants at different stages of growth; setting up a comparative test to show that plants need light and water to stay healthy
