The digestive system!

Year 4 have had a very scientific two weeks. We began our new topic 'Healthy me!' by looking at our teeth. We looked at the different teeth in our mouths and their purpose. We also found out about why it is important to look after our teeth and what can happen if we don't. We particularly enjoyed listening to the singing dentist who made learning about our teeth really fun!

Following this, we wanted to find out what happened to the food that we eat after we swallowed it. Miss Stanworth decided that the best way for us to learn about this would be for us to see it! We carried out three experiments to see how the oesophagus, the stomach and the intestines work. It was really gross but fascinating to see how our lunch ended up as waste! Macauley said, 'Watching the food go through the tight intestines was disgusting but really interesting!' 

We are looking forward to continuing our learning about keeping safe and healthy next week with a visit from Lincolnshire Stay Safe Partership to take part in the home to school transport workshop.
