This half term 8G have been learning all about teeth and digestion as part of our topic “All about Me.” We started the topic off by tasting a variety of foods and used the terms sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Once we established that our tongue was responsible for our taste we then learnt about the process of digestion and used the terms saliva teeth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine. After learning the function of each part, with the aid of a song, we made our own model digestive system. We also used musical instruments to illustrate the journey of the digestive system. When learning about teeth we learnt the names of the teeth, their functions and some of the ways we need to look after our teeth and what can happen if we do not. We supported our understanding by undertaking an experiment using eggs! We made our predictions on a graph, before learning that too many sugary drinks (cola and flavored water) is bad for our teeth, along with orange juice which is acidic. The best drink for our teeth is milk, which did not have an affect.
