  Home Learning Term 4

There is no set Home Learning for Term 4.

By now you are all self -directed learners, therefore you

need to be motivated to continue the learning outside the classroom.

You will still have spelling words each week.

You can decide what method you wish to use to learn them.

Any questions, see me.

Reading Comprehension

Seeds

All plants grow from seeds. Seeds are produced in a plants ovule, but end up in the soil in many different ways. Some seeds blow from the flower in the wind and land in the soil, some seeds will be eaten by animals and dropped in different places, some even float in water until they begin to grow and many are put into packets and bought by gardeners.

Seeds are very different in shape and size for many reasons. Some seeds are light so that they can blow in the wind, some can float so that they can travel in water, some are large like a peach stone and some are small like the seeds on a strawberry.

Many seeds can be eaten. Sunflower seeds or poppy seeds can be eaten on their own or in bread. Coconuts can be eaten as can peas and beans which are seeds from a plant also.


1. What do all plants grow from?


2. Where are seeds produced?


3. Name three ways in which seeds move away from their plant.


4. Name a plant whose seeds float and a plant whose seeds fly away.


5. Name two types of seeds that can be eaten.


6. Write down as many plants/fruits as you can think of, how many seeds they have, and what features these seeds have. Draw some labeled examples.

and sometimes contain mistakes, misquotes, or opinions.
