Our Summer Project- Burps, Bottoms and Bile
Open wide – let’s take a look inside. We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body.
The children have enjoyed starting off our new ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile' project today by looking at how effectively we brush our teeth. We used plaque disclosing tablets to check how much coloured plaque remained once we had brushed our teeth. Some children were very shocked at the results!
What effects do different drinks have on our teeth?
Today, we looked at what had happened to the egg shells we placed in a range of different liquids last week. We observed what happened over the course of the week, compared the eggs from the different liquids and discussed what had happened and why. This helped us to see what effects different drinks have on our teeth.
We have made fabulous t-shirts showing a diagram of the digestive system.
Our working digestive system!
Last week, we used a variety of materials to make a model of the digestive system. We tested one of our models using porridge to see if food could pass through. We evaluated its success and any challenges.
Our summer 2 project...
I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare. Invade and attack. Romans versus Celts, the fight is on. Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar and find out what the Romans did for us. Get ready for Gladiator School and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus, brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum. When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?
Our Roman Day...
We have had a fantastic Roman day today to start off our new project 'I am Warrior!'. Thank you so much for help with costumes and props. We started off the day with Roman maths where we learnt all about Roman numerals (we even sang a Roman numeral song to help us). In English, we learnt all about the story of Romulus and Remus. We read the story in our pairs and retold and summarised the main points. We also created our own Roman coins out of clay and painted these to look like bronze, silver or gold. We finished off our day playing Roman games like noughts and crosses and a game of Romans vs Celts. The children enjoyed signing songs to help us with our learning and finding out their own Roman name.
