Ancient Egyptian Day!
Take a look at what we got up to! You'll see an escape room, authentic food, dancing, games, craft, quiz and some incredible outfits. Brilliant job everyone.
Trip to the Ulster Museum
What a day we had at the museum! We saw the Takabuti exhibition before getting to hold some artefacts which were thousands of years old. It was a terrific day and we couldn't believe we were allowed to hold the real objects from ancient tombs. Thanks to Fiona Baird and the Ulster Museum.
The Digestive System
P5 are learning about all the important systems of the human body. Last week we were finding out about the digestive system and we used bananas and crackers to represent the food we eat. We added some water to act as saliva and some orange juice to represent the acid in our stomach. We all enjoyed using our hands to mash up the food like the stomach wall would do in our bodies. Then we transferred the contents of the stomach into the small intestine and watched as the nutrients from the small intestine flowed through the wall of the intestine. When all the moisture had been squeezed out we transferred the remaining food waste into a cup which acted the large intestine and we pushed it out through a small hole, just like going to the toilet. What a messy way to learn about the digestive system!
