In autumn 1 children study the human body, specifically teeth and digestion. We learn how food travels in our body and why we need the food we eat. Children take part in a digestion 8nvetsigate and try to emulate the journey food takes through the digestive system using visual and kinaesthetic materials.
We also investigate what types of teeth we have and their functions. We study animal teeth to discuss similarities and differences with our own teeth. Then we take part in a week long tooth decay enquiry. This shows how different liquid we drink affect our teeth enamel.
