In Topic, the children have been thinking scientifically to explore the digestive system.
Today the children carried out their own investigation looking at the digestive system. The children re-created food moving through the digestive system, in particular, the oesophagus by mushing up food and forcing it through a pair of tights. The tights represented the oesophagus. It was messy but the children seemed to really enjoy it!
The children then used this investigation to help create an information leaflet all about the digestive system.
