Year 4 – Burps, Bottoms and Bile – 24.2.20

Today the children started the new half term with a hook morning into their new topic – Burps, Bottoms and Bile.

The topic looks at the digestive system and how food travels down it. The first part of the digestive system is in the mouth, where the teeth start to tear, grind and chew the food before it heads down to our stomachs.

Throughout the morning, the children learnt how to brush their teeth effectively and even got to have a go themselves.

They learnt that:

  • You need to brush for at least 2 minutes twice a day
  • You brush in a circular motion on the outside, top and inside of your teeth
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste
