The Starch Test (16th June 2017)

In Science this week, our Secondary pupils have been investigating photosynthesis – in particular whether plants really do make their own food by photosynthesis.

One way to investigate whether a plant has been performing photosynthesis is by testing a leaf for starch. This is an investigation that pupils in Newts, Foxes and Badgers classes carried out – brilliant skills were displayed and fun was had by all. Well done!
