Burps, Bottoms and Bile!


This year we will be studying a range of different topics.  In this term we will be working through 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.
