We learned all about the importance of bees today in our lesson on pollination.
When the bee digs into the next flower the pollen on her body rubs off onto the stigma of the new flower. This is called pollination. When the pollen lands on the stigma it travels down the style towards the ovary. Once the pollen reaches the ovary it hopes to find an ovule to attach to.
The children loved this video on the importance of looking after our vital pollinators – the message is clear!
We looked more closely at the reproduction in plants and the parts of a flower which help make new seeds. The children loved the cross over between science and art.
