As our science topic on food chains and digestion comes to a close, the children took part in the most disgusting model of the digestive system! 
We started off with some food (bread) and chopped and crushed it using our incisors and molars (scissors and a potato masher). 
We added saliva (water) and transferred our food to the stomach (bag) where it was churned and stomach acid was added. 
The food was then tipped into the intestines, where the nutrients were extracted. Eventually, we had nothing left but faeces and the digestive system had completed it's work!

Thank you Maddison for being our lovely photographer whilst Ms Thornton ran the investigation!
