A journey through the human digestive system in Y3/4

Y3/4 have been learning about the human digestive system in a very realistic recreation!

They began with some food - banana, orange juice and biscuits - which went into the mouth, part of the digestive system.

After chewing, food passes down the oesophagus- pictured as two red lines drawn on the table - and into the stomach (the plastic bag).

Once in the stomach, food is then mushed and mixed with enzymes which help to break it down.

The food then passes to the intestines - also known as tights! - so that the nutrients (goodness) and water can be taken from the food and delivered around the body.

The final stage of the human digestive system is the anus which squeezes out the solid waste - and is fortunately NOT pictured though the "poo" is!
