This afternoon we had a very messy science lesson! We tried to build our own digestive system. We used bananas and cream crackers for food, water for saliva, plastic bags for the mouth and stomach, a plastic tube for the oesophagus and tights for the intestines.
The children learnt how food is broken down into nutrients and the waste products expelled.
There were lots of 'ews' and 'ughs' but at least it was memorable!
