Science - Animals including humans

Hello and  welcome to this half term's science topic - Animals Including Humans! 

This topic will teach you to:

  • Describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans
  •  Identify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple function 
  • Construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey

 

Activities/learning resources will be added to this page regularly throughout each week for you to access. Any questions please don't hesitate to let us know. 

 

Today we are starting with learning the names of the main digestive system parts in humans and establishing the role that the digestive system has within our bodies. Below please find a lesson presentation along with a worksheet and video links to support learning. 

28.4.20

 

Today have a look at comparing our digestive system to some other animals. Follow the worksheet below.

29.4.20

 

Today we will be reminding ourselves of what the digestive organs in humans are called and now learning their exact functions in our bodies. Follow the PowerPoint to learn then take the quiz at the end! Maybe have a go at testing your families!

30.4.20

 

Investigation time! Have a go at this investigation activity providing a more practical way of learning how the digestive system works. If you don't have the equipment no worries. Just an option :)

 

 

To wrap up the learning on the digestive system this week, have  go at this word search below.

w/c 4/5/20

 

This week we will be learning all about the teeth! Today we will focus on the types of teeth we have and their functions. Go through the links below:

What are The Different Types of Teeth? Types of teeth and their functions

5.5.20

Today have a look through this PowerPoint on comparing teeth. There is a small practical activity then a written activity. Learn about what you need to do to keep your teeth healthy.

7.5.20

 

Remind yourselves of the types of teeth we have and their functions. 

Today we will be learning about how to keep our teeth healthy. 

 

Can you think of things we do on a day to day basis that keep our teeth clean and healthy? e.g. brush teeth twice a day and don't eat too many sugary foods.

Experiment time! This week have a go at this tooth decay experiment to find out what things can cause decay more than others in this practical activity. 

Follow the PowerPoint and worksheets below. Good luck investigating! 

14.5.20

 

Today we will be comparing animal teeth. Think back to what you have already learned about teeth. Can you remember their names and what they are used for?
