photosynthesis uses sun's energy (light) to turn carbon dioxide and water into sugars.

cellular respiration produces energy by turning sugars and oxygen into carbon dioxide and water

The reactants of the photosynthesis are water and carbon dioxide. The plants are using these ones to turn them with the help of the sun light into sugar, glucose to be exact. Oxygen, another product of the photosynthesis beside glucose, is released in the atmosphere.

The glucose is turning into energy during the cellular respiration, but a certain sum of glucose remains as starch, that is quasi the reserve of the plants. The turning into energy happens with the help of oxygen in atmosphere. At the end of the cellular respiration, carbon dioxide and water are released by stomata of the plants.

So the cellular respiration is vice versa in comparison to photosynthesis. In the cellular respiration the reactants are glucose and oxygen and the products carbon dioxide and water.

Photosynthesis: carbon dioxide + water----> oxygen + glucose
Cellular respiration: oxygen + glucose ----> carbon dioxide + water

A bit late, but with just two words and a simple reaction cycle, you really nailed it!
