Year 4 Make The Human Digestive System

In year 4, this week, we have moved on to the digestive system as part of our wider Science topic of The Human Body and Health. We finished off the lesson, writing about each of the different organs and their functions as part of the digestive process. However the lesson started very differently, with the children creating their own internal organs, with tights, sandwich bags and plastic cups. What started with a banana and some cream crackers ended with ‘poo’. The children really enjoyed our messy experiment and it gave them a real hands on experience of the digestive system in action!
