Helford Class Science workshop at Penair School

Heather Hatch Latest News

Helford class were lucky to take a trip to Penair and take part in an investigation about what plants need to stay healthy and grow. The pupils knew that plants needed water, light and nutrients- however, they found out that they also need CO2 and give out Oxygen. Pupils (with the help of Mr Brown) set up an experiment that involved a pond plant, water, sodium hydroxide, and a funnel and they set about counting the oxygen bubbles. This was tricky as there were so many to count!  Thank you to Penair and our parent-helpers that came along to support our pupils.
