Year 4 journeyed through the digestive system during their practical workshop. In groups, they recreated what happens to food when it enters the mouth, through the body and how it ends up in the toilet. They learnt that the process starts in the mouth, with the teeth chewing and grinding the food with the help of saliva breaking the food down. Children also learnt the scientific names and the functions of each stage of the process, and used piping bags, water and coloured water to replicate the different enzymes within the body to see what effect they have on the digestive system. The workshop was very engaging and the children loved it!
