In science we have been looking at the human body in detail. We have learnt about the circulatory system (including the lungs) and the digestive system.


As part of this unit, we have looked at the effect of drugs, alcohol, diet and exercise on the body.

First we worked in groups with one child as a leader to create a presentation to show the rest of the class on one particular element which everyone evaluated, then we looked into prescription and non-prescription drugs (including alcohol) to address any misconceptions. To do this we worked in coaching pairs to label the human body with the effect of a particular drug. These effects included side effects of some drugs.

"The work gave us more confidence than if we worked by ourselves because to could talk to each other and share information that we might already know."
