Plants

Plants: Science planning, activities and resources for Key Stages 1 and 2.

Designed with the Plants programme of study in the primary National Curriculum for Science in mind (although ideal for those who don't use the National Curriculum, too!), these complete schemes of work are ready to teach and packed with information and activities for learning about the parts of a plant and their functions, the things plants need to survive and their life cycles, including plant reproduction and seed dispersal.

Resources included with lessons include slides and a range of resources and activities for teaching about plant growth, classification, characteristics and adaptation, too.

Detailed planning with every lesson ensures that teachers have the information they need to teach this challenging strand of primary Science.

Our Reviews

“I just wanted to say a big thank you! Your lovely resources make my life as a teacher that little bit more bearable. I spend most of my evenings and weekends planning and resourcing lessons, but since discovering the magic of PlanBee I have been able to 'claim back' some of this time. My class of 30 hard-to-please children certainly enjoyed learning about the Greeks last term - all thanks to you! ”
