P2/3have been learning all about the human body. We carried out an experiment to find out how our digestive system works. Digestion starts in the mouth, where food is chewed and salvia added. It then goes down the oesophagus and enters the stomach. We put crackers in a bag – acting as our stomach. Crushed them up and added coke to act as the hydrochloric acid. It was pretty yuck!!! We found out that it then enters the small intestine where digested food is absorbed into the blood stream. Our small intestine is 6 meters long. So we made our own out of paper chains. It’s pretty long eh?!
P2/3 have been working really hard to improve their story writing skills. We designed our own characters from play dough and then made a story walk about them. This really helped us be imaginative and talk about our work before the formal writing part. We are so pleased how they turned out!
