The Eating Machine!

In English this week we have been reading an explanation text called ‘The Eating Machine’. The children have worked hard to sequence the story and then act it together. First the front teeth bite a chunk from the apple, then the back teeth chew it up and mix it with saliva. After that, the stomach mixes special juices to help you digest the food and the small intestine has more special juices to make any bits even smaller.

The useful bits and the water go into the blood and then lastly, the waste goes through the large intestine andwe get rid of it in the toilet.
