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!
