Key Stage 2 - Flower Structure and Plant Reproduction
A variety of fresh material and binocular microscopes are used to explore the amazing structure of flowers. The diversity of structure is related to reproduction in plants.
Students observe the structure of the flower using our microscopes
Pupils will be wowed by the beauty and biology of flowers when they look closely at their parts in different plants. They explore how this diversity of structure helps the plants in their reproductive process.

We design our sessions to match the learning outcomes in the National Curriculum. All our sessions have a cross-curricular approach and are tailored to suit the educational needs of your group. We aim to give pupils opportunities to work scientifically in areas that are difficult or impossible to create in the school environment
This session offers pupils the opportunity to:
- use hand lenses and binocular microscopes to look at a variety of flowers
- investigate flower structure
- identify structures which make up a flower
- relate flower structure to the process of pollination
This KS2 visit supports and enhances the Science curriculum offered in schools.
Year 3 - Plants
- explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal
Year 5 Living things and their habitat
- describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals
