This afternoon you are going to learn all about seed dispersal. Before seeds can grow into new plants, they need to leave the seed pod. If all the seeds a plant produced landed just underneath the parent plant, they would be too crowded, and would not have enough light or water for them all to develop properly. When you plant seeds too thickly in a pot, you can see that they grow tall and leggy, and each plant is weak and spindly. Plants disperse their seeds in different ways to make sure as many seeds as possible have a good chance of growing into plants. Have a look at this clip from Maddie explaining seed dispersal in the wild: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJAbo-F6tO4
Now this this short clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/znvfb9q
And this great clip showing seeds dispersed by explosion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB0P3mx_lxY
In your books
Use this website to write about seed dispersal: http://theseedsite.co.uk/dispersal.html
Write a main heading ‘Seed Dispersal’ then use the 5 different methods of seed dispersal as subheadings. Under each subheading, write a short paragraph explaining the method of dispersal. You will need to click on the picture and read the information for each type of seed dispersal. If you can access it, there is also a helpful Powerpoint at the end of this page.
Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. Continue using myON to do your online reading and quizzes at: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html. We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So, go on, let’s get reading!
Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell the Year 2 spellings, then do the Year 3/4. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
