Dissecting a flower

In Y3 we have been learning about the life cycle of a flowering plant. We dissected a lily to see what was inside.  We found out that it consists of a male part (the stamen) and a female part (the carpel).  Insects and the wind carry pollen from the male part of one plant to the female part of another, this is called pollination.


Ancient Greek Hoplites

Y3 have been exploring the armour worn by the Ancient Greek hoplites and made their own version by drawing around one of the children, then using craft materials to decorate in the appropriate colours.  Many thanks to our school cook, who very kindly supplied a lot of tin foil!
