LO: To use modelling to describe how the digestive system works.

In today’s lesson, we modeled the digestive system using orange juice, crackers, water and banana. Using these resources, we were able to represent different parts of the digestive system such as the stomach, small intestines and the large intestines. We were able to see how the food churned in the stomach and how the small and large intestines help us get the nutrients we need into the blood stream.

Year 4 – Daniel – Debate – Who Impacted Britain More?

LO: To investigate who had the greater impact on life today.

Today we researched the impact that the Anglo-Saxons and the Romans had on Britain as we know it today. Half of the class researched the impact of the Romans, whilst the other half looked into the impact of the Anglo-Saxons. In our groups we researched and gathered the key information to support our points. Afterwards, we were able to debate with the opposing group. This allowed us to share the information we researched and hear what the other group discovered. 

After hearing both sides of the debate, who do you believe had more of an impact on Britain?
