What Do Plants Need? Remind the children about the cress that was planted in the previous lesson, and ask children to reassemble into their pairs. Ask the children to predict which cress will have grown the best. Encourage the children to give reasons for their answers. Distribute both cress plants to each pair, and give the children time to compare the two. Using the Lesson Presentation, explain that plants grow best at a suitable temperature, but this temperature differs from plant to plant. Ask the children if they can remember the other two factors that they have learnt affect plant growth. Plants We Eat: Take suggestions of plants or parts of plants that we eat. Explain the main groups of edible plants, with examples, inviting children to name foods that they recognise, and familiar ways that they eat these foods. After this, give children one minute to write down five examples of food that comes from plants on their whiteboards. From Farm to Fork: Explain that most of the plants we eat are grown on farms, before they are sold to shops and ultimately bought and eaten by the consumer. Watch the video to explore some of the different strategies used by farmers to make sure their plant crops grow well. On the Farm: Children complete the differentiated On The Farm Activity Sheet, drawing some foods that could be grown on their farm and writing a sentence to explain what their plant crops would need to grow well.


Blue and yellow group: Write three words to describe what their plants need to grow well. Green, Orange and Red group write a description of what their plants would need to grow well. Food Glorious Food: Bring in a selection of food plants for the children to taste. Include food from different parts of plants. While tasting, see if children can identify the part of the plant that the food comes from, and discuss what kind of conditions the plant might need to grow.
