As a part of Science in KS2, children will look at growth in plants, animals and in humans. One obvious example of growth is the one that the children are themselves (slowly!) experiencing - the transformation from child to adult.
Growth is maturing. Growing is something that you are doing all the time without even having to think about it. You grow a little bit taller every day, although you may not notice it. Over time you will have changed from a child into an adult. But humans are not the only living organisms to grow - animals and plants do too. You may have seen your pet change from a small puppy into a fully grown dog. It's easy to see plants growing - plant some seeds and, before long, they'll have roots and stems.
