WOW Science Day

14th October 2016

Woodpecker class enjoyed a WOW science day on Friday 14th October in school. As the school currently has use of some innovative 3-D equipment, the children had a one-off look at digestion in the human body. They participated in some quite messy but fun hands-on activities including using different equipment to replicate the jobs done by different internal organs, such as the mouth, stomach and large intestine. They then used the 3-D equipment which enabled them to have a very close up look at the small intestine, including the millions of tiny little “villi”. The children had great fun and reveled (or were revolted by!) the messy tasks. It was wonderful to have a whole day for the children to fully immerse themselves in the subject matter and even better to have such stimulating resources.
