Today, year 3 have been learning about the digestive system. They followed the journey of Mr Norman’s breakfast starting at the mouth, where the food is chewed and swallowed. Down into the stomach where it is churned up and protein is broken down. Next, onto the small intestine where nutrients are absorbed. Then, onto the large intestine to absorb water and salt. Finally, when the body has taken all it needs, the waste is stored until we go to the bathroom.
