Welcome back! In our final term of the year, we will be learning all about the marvellous Human body!
Open wide- Let’s take a look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your human body! Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary drinks on your pearly whites! Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmmmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene- at both ends! And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just from its poo!? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Do beans really have wind power? Let’s work scientifically and bottom this one out, once and for all. Make a working model of the digestive system and use this to persuade other to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our human body.
Homework: Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is expected to be returned each Tuesday (or earlier). Homework returned on time will earn children 5 You’ve Been Spotteds and 10 house points. Children that do not return homework on time will complete it during break times until it is complete. Homework will consist of times tables practise and spellings practise. Children will also be expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. All homework must be completed neatly, to the same standard as work in school.
