We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.


Burps, Bottoms and Bile!

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 travels through your digestive system, helped by some mouth=watering saliva! Mmmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene – at both ends!

And while we are 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 all work scientifically and get to the bottom of this 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 marvelous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body.
