Monday 10th June 2019 – Botanical illustrations in Year 5

Filed under: Science,Year 5 @ 5:27 pm

As part of Year 5’s Science topic, ‘Living Things’, the children looked at some botanical illustrations that are used by scientists to help identify species of flowers. We watched a short video from the Natural History museum which highlighted the importance of these illustrations. We then recapped the specific names of the parts of a flower (which the children had previously learnt in year 3) to help them with their drawing. Today, we focused on drawing the plant as a whole and tomorrow we will dissect the plant so that the children can draw the male and female parts of the plant to complete their botanical illustration.
