The Digestive System

In science this term, Beech and Lime class are learning about Animals including humans.

We have spent the first few weeks finding out about the digestive system. The children started by labelling the different parts that make up the digestive system before they then focused on the functions of each. The children enjoyed learning about how food travels through the body and the journey that it takes so that it can be broken down in order for us to get the nutrients that we need. The children then used this to produce models of their own showing everything that they had learnt so far.

Here are a few photos of the children working in their groups and then their finished digestive systems.

We are now moving on to learning about the different types of teeth and how they each have very different functions.
