Ultimate Frisbee Zoom

This week Class 6 had a virtual zoom with a professional Ultimate Frisbee player! Merete joined us from Johannesburg, South Africa where she plays professional Ultimate Frisbee representing her country. Merete spoke to us about how to improve our Frisbee skills, highlighting that practice makes the most difference. She also told us all about the animals and food where she lives - we were fascinated by everything she said about elephants. She had a wonderful time zooming with Class 6 and said our questions were really well thought out! Well done Class 6!

How does our body digest our food?

As part of our study of the human body, Class 6 completed an experiment to see how our body digests our food. We first began by 'chewing' the food by adding food to a zip lock bag and squeezing it together. We added water to the bag to simulate saliva. Then the food travelled to the stomach, where orange juice was added to represent stomach acid. The food then started to break down a lot and looked truly disgusting! Next, the food travelled through a pair of tights to represent the intestines where all the nutrients and water were squeezed out and sent through the circulatory system. The solid mass at the bottom was then passed through two cups to represent the act of going to the toilet!

We had so much fun with this experiment - it was sooo disgusting!

Have a look at the video at the bottom to see everyone's reaction to the final step!

  

 

 

  

Making BLOOD!!

Class 6 today had the most fantastic time making blood! We started by filling our water bottles 2/3 full with water, then we began to make all the components. We used cheerios and red food colouring to represent out red blood cells, and then added in marshmellows to show our white blood cells. To make plasma, we used a concoction of water, yellow food colouring and salt to represent the nutrients in the blood. We finally added platelets using purple paper and we had our very own blood! Class 6 needed to show brilliant team work and communication skills and I was very impressed with everyone. Really well done!
