We were very lucky to have three students from Cardiff University come in to school to carry out a number of different workshops with us, all about our new context called Burps, Bottoms and Bile! Chloe, Holly and Rachael carried out activities telling us all the gory details of what happens in our digestive systems; showing us the germs that are on our hands and fun facts about our bones and how important these are to us! We had a fantastic afternoon and learnt heaps of new facts about our bodies.
