How well do we clean our teeth?

Year 4 have been learning all about the digestive system, starting at the beginning… the mouth. This week we investigated how well we brush our teeth. First of all, we brushed our teeth as normal, and then we used special tablets (plaque disclosing tablets) to show up any areas of our mouth that hadn’t been […]

Making poo

In science today, we recreated our digestive system and transformed food into poop. We used different everyday objects to represent different parts of the digestive system – for example we used tights as intestines. As you can imagine, it was a messy, stinky job, but we had fun!

How fit am I?

In year 4, we conducted our own fitness tests. We first learned how to measure our pulse, and then exercised intensively for 1 minute. Then, we recorded our pulse every minute for 6 minutes. When we plotted our data on a line graph, we could see how fit we were. We compared our heart rate […]

Getting to know our bodies

In science this week, year 4 investigated the function and location of different body parts. We had to stick postits on our partner where we thought that organ was. Afterwards, we draw diagrams using oil pastels to show all the different organs involved in the digestive system. They look very vibrant on black paper.
