Lesson video

In progress...


Hi everyone, I'm Miss Harris.

Welcome to today's science lesson.

How are you doing today? Good.

Now, today we are going to be looking at this question.

Let me make it bigger.

What are parts of trees and plants? Or What are the parts of trees and plants called? Now, at the end of the lesson, I'm going to be asking you to tell me what flower you can see in my background.

Have a good look.

Keep it in your head.

And then I'm going to tell you the end and you're going to tell me if you know it.

Okay? So let's see what else we're going to be doing.

We are going to be looking at the parts of a tree, labelling some parts of a tree, labelling parts of a flower and looking at the parts of a flower.

And then we've got our end of lesson quiz.

So we've got a very busy lesson today.

We are going to need an exercise book or a piece of paper, a pencil, a coloured pencil.

and most importantly, your brain, you guessed it.

So pause the video if you need to go and get any of these things.

So in this unit of work, we are-scientists! Can you remember what a scientist is? Can you tell me? So scientist is a person who studies the world around us, including things living and non-living.

So what is a living thing that we are learning about at the moment? Plants! You're right.

Plants and trees.

Good job.

So let's do our Star Words.

These words here, this way.

These words are the important words we are going to be using a lot this lesson.

So let's practise.

I'm going to say it, then I want you to say it, ready? Star Words! Star Words! Star Words! Your turn! stem petal flower trunk Your turn! leaves branch root root stem Good job, well done.

So over the last few weeks, we have been looking at our bean plants and seeing how they have changed over time.

So here is a picture of my bean plant.

So if you didn't plant one in lesson one, don't worry.

You can use my bean plant here to help you with this task.

So I would like you to pause the video and draw a picture of your bean plant, or you're going to draw a picture of my bean plant.

So pause the video, have a go at that now.

Well done.

So my bean plant is a little seedling now.

It's pushed its way a little bit out of the soil, and it's got lots of lovely, healthy roots down at the bottom in this soil.

So, today we are going to be learning about parts of trees.

So you can see here I've got a picture of the trunk.

Now on the trunk of a tree, you can see where my red arrow is pointing to, that's called bark that you can see in the square.

So on a trunk of a tree, it's wrapped in bark to protect it.

So you can see here it's really bumpy and it's often a brown colour and it's all, it goes all the way around a trunk.

So a tree trunk isn't nice and smooth.

It's got lots of bumpy bark around it.

Now over time, trees can change.

So they can grow from a seed and eventually grow into lots of really big, healthy trees.

But it takes a really long time for a tree to grow into an enormous tree that you might see outside.

But some trees can produce fruit.

So you can see here, I've got a lovely apple tree that first grew and it had lots of lovely green leaves on it.

Then it produced lots of flowers.

And once the flowers, the petals fell off, it produced some, lots of red apples.

So not all trees produce fruit.

They might just produce seeds, which can be plant, taken off the tree and planted somewhere else.

So here is a tree and I've got all the parts labelled.

So at the top, we have got fruit, because lots of trees have fruit.

Then, we've got the trunk of the tree, which is the, almost like the stem of a tree.

And it's really big, and it helps the tree to stand up nice and tall.

We've then got lots of wonderful leaves around the tree.

Now we have learned previously about deciduous trees and evergreen trees.

Both of them will have all of these things apart from fruit because evergreen trees will not produce any fruit.

And we can see we've got some branches, which are holding all the leaves and holding all of the fruit on there.

And at the bottom, we've got lots of lovely roots, because depending on how big the tree is, there's going to be lots of roots in the ground.

So now, I would like you to first draw a picture of the tree and then use the words down the side to label each part of the tree and then going to check them afterwards.

So pause the video, draw a picture of the tree, and then can you label the parts of the tree? Well done.

Let's check whether we've got the right answer.

So we've got fruit at the top.

Then we've got the tree trunk.

You can see where the arrow is pointing to.

And on the other side, we have got leaves, branch and roots at the bottom.

Great job.

Now let's take a closer look at the parts of a flower.

So here I've got a dandelion, which is a wildflower, and I've got, there's three different parts to this flower because over time a dandelion will grow and change and it will look pretty different.

So first, you can see we've got the yellow flower in the middle.

We've then here got the bud of a flower.

So before the flower grows into a beautiful yellow flower, it's grown into a bud and eventually, it will grow, grow, grow, and then it will burst into a lovely yellow flower.

And over time, the yellow flower, the petals will fall off and the plant will produce seeds, which you can see on the other side of my picture, can you find the word seed? It spells like this: S-EE-D.


Can you put your finger on it on the other side? Well done.

So if you picked a dandelion when it was covered in seeds, you could blow it like this, and all the seeds would fly around around you.

So dandelions, like other plants have roots in the ground and they have lots of leaves around them.

So keep this in your head because I'm going to ask you to draw it in a moment and label the parts.

Are you ready? Can you label each part of the flower? So draw a picture of it and then label it.

Are you ready? Off you go.

Well done.

So let's check our answers.

So we have got a flower.

Then we've got the bud, then the leaves, the roots in the ground.

And on the other side, we've got the seeds and the stems. So it's really important that we know that before flower can grow, it is a tiny bud.

So before the flower grows, it's a bud and then it will burst open into a lovely flower.

And then sometimes the plant will produce seeds like our daffodil does.

So here we have got a rose plant.

Now, if we take a closer look at the flowers, you can see here that this on the top of the stem we've got a little bud, let me just make sure you can see it.

There we go.

So here is a little bud.

Eventually, this will grow bigger and bigger and it will bloom into a flower that looks like this.

And over time, that flower will get bigger and bigger til it produces a lovely rose like this one.

So a flower will start off by growing from the stem, it will grow lots of roots, lots of leaves, and then it will have a little bud like this one, and then it will grow and produce some petals into a flower.

So you can see this one here is much bigger than the one next to it because this one started growing first.

So the sizes are very different here.

Now it's time for end of lesson quiz.

You've worked really hard today and have learned lots of different parts of a tree and a flower.

Maybe when you go for a walk next time you can take a closer look at lots of flowers and trees around you and see if you can tell the person you're with what each part is.

Let's have a look at my background now.

Do you know what flower is in my background? This is called a what? It's called a tulip.

A tulip flower can come in lots of different colours and they can grow really tall and they produce seeds in the middle.

Great job.

Great job today.

I've just said, great job today.

You've worked really, really hard, and I can't wait to see all of your wonderful work.

I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you next time.
