Last week, we visited the zoo as part of the dissolving boundaries initiative. We enjoyed meeting the children from Elmgrove primary school. We learned lots of interesting facts about the various different animals around the zoo from the very knowledgeable zookeepers! We also had fun in the playground! A detailed account of our visit is coming soon in the class news page!
We have been learning about the important function of the lungs in our body. We constructed a model of the lungs using a plastic bottle as the rib cage, a straw as the trachea and bronchus, a balloon as the lung and stretched plastic/ balloon as the diaphragm. When the diaphragm is pulled down, the balloon inflates like a lung inhaling air.
