Science - This Is Us

This term our science focus has been 'Humans'. We have been investigating both the circulatory system and the digestive system. The highlight of the theme for many was the creating of their own 'excrement'! We used a jug (mouth), scissors (incisors), a fork (molars), a sandwich bag (stomach), a pair of tights (intestines) and a piping bag (anus). The children learnt about each stage of the digestive process with this hand-on simulation with some hilarious (and slightly disgusting) results!
 
Within our English sessions we have been using the book 'Anatomy' by  Helene Druvert to write some amazing explanations of these systems.
During our art sessions, the children have created their own life-size (and weighted) versions of the major organs of the body!
