Our science event

4A taught their families all about the digestive system today, and it was messy, and a bit gross, but hopefully lots of fun was had!

First, we had to mush up the food inside the stomach.

Then we had to transfer the pulp to the intestines, where all of the water and nutrients were removed as the body absorbed them.

Finally, it was time to take all of the solid waste, left over and unneeded by the body, and get rid of it…

Thank you to all of the families who came and were such good sports and were willing to get a bit mucky to celebrate your child’s fantastic learning this half term. To all of 4A, well done! You’ve learned such a lot, and have produced some fantastic writing too :)
