1:30-2:30pm  Science - Seed Dispersal and The Life Cycle of a Flowering Plants 

Activity 1  

After a plant has produced a seed, the seed needs to find a way away from the parent plant to start life of its own. This is called seed dispersal. There are 5 main types of seed dispersal:  

  1. Seeds caught on the wind  

  1. Seeds eaten by animals 

  1. Seeds carried away by water 

  1. Seeds explode from the parent plant 

  1. Seeds catch a lift on an animal 

Watch:  and 

Look at the images on the worksheet ‘Seed dispersal’.  Sort the seeds according to which way they are dispersed from the parent plant.  You can either print the pages or just make 5 columns in your book and list the types of seeds in each column. If you found any examples of your own over the weekend, sort them as well.  Photos welcome!  😊  


Activity 2 

Now that you know all about the life cycle of flowering plants, complete page 1 of The Life Cycle of a Flowering Plant – cut and paste. 


2:30-3:00 Music  

Today’s goal is to learn the lyrics to the 3 verses so you can sing it without looking at the words.  Look at the lyrics below.  There is a lot of repetition.  There are some words highlighted to help you remember them.  

In the jungle, the mighty jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 
In the jungle the quiet jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 


Near the village the peaceful village 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Near the village the quiet village 
The lion sleeps tonight 


Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight

Please also sing along to the songs we will be singing to celebrate VE day next Thursday.
