15 Feb Year 4 Science
The Year 4’s have learned about the digestive system. We learned that digestion begins in the mouth. Food travels down to the oesophagus, then to the stomach. Inside the stomach, food get mushed up. Next, the food travels to the small intestine, then to the large intestine and anything that the body cannot absorb ends up in the toilet.
We used a variety of items as part of practical activity to construct the digestive system and to observe how it works.
