What are they looking at?
We've been continuing our learning about the digestive system and what it does. This week we have looked at the intestines (small and large) and the rectum and anus.
We used porridge and a couple of pairs of tights to show how vitamins and minerals are absorbed into the body in the small intestine, and water and salts are absorbed in the large intestine.
Here's how it looked!
We used porridge and tights to show how poo(faeces) is made!
The digestive system - mouth to stomach
Here we have made a stomach out of a plastic bag. The orange juice represents the stomach acid and gastric juices. When food enters the stomach, muscle contractions gently move the food around in order for the enzymes to continue breaking up the food.

We have been learning about the process of mummification. We managed to find a dead body and re-enact the process of embalming, as the Ancient Egyptians would have done.

What are 4Sa doing with tubes of toothpaste?
We had some clever ideas about how to get the toothpaste back in. We became solution seekers!
We found out that unkind words are like toothpaste. Once they are 'out' there's no putting them back in. The after effects are there for people to see and feel. We have learnt that paying someone a compliment feels much better than saying something unkind.
4Sa hosted our first Paired Reading event this term at the Sanctuary. It was great to be paired with 1D. Look at the fun we had sharing our enjoyment of books.
