What an afternoon we had yesterday! Some of it was fun, other bits were not so pleasant! We have been learning about digestion.
Before the holiday, we began by thinking about the different jobs our teeth do. We know that our incisors bite and cut the food like scissors, our canines pierce food and our molars grind it into small pieces so we can swallow it. We reminded ourselves of these key facts by eating some celery and carrot. (For some of us, the celery was the most disgusting part of the topic!)
Yesterday, the real fun started! We followed the journey of a banana sandwich, a bowl of porridge, a cup of coffee and a Mars bar as it moved through the digestive system!
