Happy Wednesday everyone laugh. Congratulations to the many many correct answers on the brainteaser: "I am an odd number. Take away one letter and I become even. What number am I?" The answer is seven (remove the s and become even). Well done to Charlotte who was first with the correct answer but a special mention too to Albion who offered another solution: IX (Roman Numerals for 9) - remove one letter (I) and become even - X (Roman Numeral for 10)!

► LET'S LEARN ABOUT.... plants

Yesterday we started to learn about how we eat all sorts of different parts of a plant. Here are some completely edible plants created by Liam, Lewis TSAlbion and Jakub

We also learnt about how important flowers are in helping plants reproduce.

Watch the Pollinator Rap below...

So when pollen is moved from one plant to the next by an insect, the wind, birds or other animals the plant that receives the pollen can now start to make seeds.

Think about these questions:

  • When the plant has made all its seeds, what happens to them?
  • Does a plant want to drop all its seeds on the ground right below it? Why not?
  • How does a plant make sure that it spreads its seeds out so that they can grow in new places?

Watch the videos below to learn more about how plants disperse (send away from them) their seeds.


Nature is a wonderful creator. The video above shows the incredible helicopter seeds that nature has created. The video above that shows clever seeds that stick to fur of an animal - have you ever had a seed stick to your clothes?

Can we create working models of two of natures clever methods of seed dispersal?


You will need:

  • paper
  • scissors
  • tape

Follow the instructions below. I would love to see a video if it works laugh


Watch the film below to see how an inventor pinched a great idea from nature....

You will need:

  • an empty yoghurt pot or something similar
  • scissors
  • a woolly jumper or furry soft toy

What to do:

Can you use your scissors to cut out a shape and cut and bend the plastic into the spikiest shape you can...think of the hooks on the seeds?

Here is my design:

Now can you attach it to your woolly thing?

  • Will it cling on if you move your woolly thing?
  • Will it cling on if you shake your woolly thing?
  • Are you as good a creator as nature?

See my burr seed clinging on to my llama below...

I would love to see your pics or videos laugh
