  • Friday 28 May 2021 Water Uptake in Plants In science, Marvellous Meerkats have been learning all about water transport in plants. They were amazed to learn that, inside the roots, leaves and stem, you can find small tubes called 'xylem' and 'phloem'. To investigate how water exits a plant, they conducted a short experiment. The children found that if you tie a plastic bag around some leaves, after a while, it will fog up. This is because of the escaping water vapour. This is rather like water vapour escaping from your lungs when you breathe out. If you look on Twitter, you will see how interested Maeve was in the bags on plants!

The class put this to the test.
  • Friday 21 May 2021 Evolution and Adaptation in Years Four and Five In Super Sharks, in science, the children are studying evolution. They have been investigating and simulating different types of beaks to work out which type of beak is most usual to ensure birds will survive and adapt in their environment.
  • Friday 21 May 2021 Year Three Science In science, Marvellous Meerkats have been learning all about photosynthesis. To help us remember the word equation for photosynthesis, we decided to act it out. We learnt that, for photosynthesis to occur, water and carbon dioxide must react in the presence of sunlight and chlorophyll (the green substance that gives leaves their green colour). As a result, sugar (glucose) and oxygen are produced. The sugar is transported to other parts of the plants and used as the plant's main food supply. However, the oxygen, which is a waste product of photosynthesis, is released from the plant through small holes on the underside of the leaves, called stomata. Next week, we will be learning all about water transport in plants...we cannot wait!
  • Friday 21 May 2021 Kimbolton Students Virtually Visit Year Six The Proud Lions have had another brilliant session with students from Kimbolton School.
