Year 3 – Helping Plants Grow Well

In Science this half term, Year 3 have been learning lots about plants, and what they need to survive. Today’s lesson is all about insect pollination, and how this helps plants to survive and reproduce.

Learning Objective: To describe and model the process of insect pollination.

yourchallenge is to write a role play playscript for children to use to model pollination.

Think about – what is the job of the petals? Why does the bee visit the flower? How does the bee transfer the pollen?

When you have finished, act out your playscript in table groups. Is it successful? Does it work?



We made voiceovers to explain the role of insects in the pollination process.

  21. 1.The job of the petal are to do hide the pollen.

    2.Bees visit flowers because they need to get the pollen to a another flower.
