The science topic in year 4 is teeth and eating.  Their practical activity this week was to recreate the digestive system using:• 1/3 banana
• 1 cream cracker
• Paper cup with hole in the bottom
• 50ml water
• Orange juice
• Sealable plastic sandwich bag
• Scissors
• A stocking (or one leg cut from a pair of tights)
• Paper towels
• A plastic or aluminium tray

This was a fantastic opportunity for the chjildren to understand what goes on inside our stomachs after we have eaten.
