Term 6's Enquiry is all about animals and plants. For the remainder of the term, we will learn about how plants grow.

You may remember that we asked you to send us drawings, photographs or descriptions of the plants and flowers you have around you. Please continue to look and send anything you have created to our email address.

Week 5: Investigate the way in which water is transported within plants.

1. Watch the clip below:
2. Have a look at this PowerPoint if it opens on your computer, tablet or phone.  Please don't worry if it doesn't as it is very similar to the video but the experiment shows what happens when you put celery into a cup with water and food colouring.

3.  What happened when the carnation flower or celery was put into a cup of coloured water? Why did this happen?


You could complete the sheet below to record your findings.

You could even have a go at this experiment yourself if you have some celery or a white flower and some food colouring at home!

If you would like to learn more about this, you could watch the Oak Academy lesson below!
