Animals including humans

In Science, we have been learning about food chains, teeth and the digestive system. We looked at tooth decay and carried out an experiment with egg shells. We spoke about how important it is to brush our teeth every day and then chatted about foods that are good for our teeth and foods that aren’t. We created an experiment using hard boiled eggs, as the shell of an egg is made up of similar substances. We put our eggs in to different liquids including, water, milk, orange juice, coffee and coca cola and left them for a week. We then looked at the results and were very shocked by the milk!! We also compared our teeth to animals, which we found really fascinating!

 

Mummifying a tomato!!

Our topic this term was Ancient Egypt. We have been looking at the River Nile and Mummification. In English we have also been looking at instructions. So we thought we would learn how to mummify a tomato and then write our own instructions for another class to follow, It was really messy, but we really enjoyed it.
