Year 4 Cornerstone Topic
'Burps, Bottoms and Bile'
Open wide- let's take a look inside! We're on a voyage to investigate the busy world inside our body! Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Are you brave enough to disclose the plaque, caused by the effect of sugary substances, on your pearly whites using the disclosing tablets.
We will follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth watering saliva!
During our journey we will be creative and make a working model of the digestive system, persuading and learning how to look after this marvellous, belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body.
