Year 4 have started their science topic on how food travels through their bodies, they began by looking at the types and functions of teeth in their mouth which they compared to the teeth of various animals. The children then enjoyed learning about how to take care of their oral hygiene and have created a very useful leaflet to help inform others of the issues that could be faced by someone who doesn’t look after their teeth.
The children then moved on to looking at the human digestive system. They each spent time exploring the process practically where they managed to turn cornflakes and banana into a waste product. The children will be writing about this process over the next week when they produce an explanation text.
