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 pearl whites!
Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmmm! 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?
Do beans really have wind power? Let’s work scientifically and bottom this one out, once and for all!
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 will cover a lot of science in this topic through completing a tooth brushing investigation, researching the different types of teeth and taking dental impressions. They will also investigate the effect of saliva on food and compare the digestive systems of animals and humans.
The children will be doing tennis with me this term. We have timetabled 2 hours of PE a week so this will mean they get 12 lessons over the term.
