In science, we have been learning all about the digestive system!

We put orange juice into a sandwich bag to represent the stomach and the acidic liquid in it. Next, we put some bread into the sandwich bag and mashed it up. This was the stomach breaking down food. We then poured this mixture into a pair of tights. This acted as the intestines. The liquid then seeped through the tights and this was the nutrients being absorbed into the blood. We squeezed the rest of the mixture through the tights and it came out the other end. This represented the large intestines pushing out our faeces, otherwise known as... poo!

What a fun time we had learning about the digestive system :)
