Event Date: 18/09/18 - 04/04/19

Key Stage 2, Autumn and Spring term

Follow the fascinating journey of a banana sandwich from the moment it is chewed, to the moment it is pooed!

Learn about the digestive system and importance of having a healthy, well-balanced diet. Discover how our bodies absorb the vitamins and minerals they needs and – more amusingly – how we get rid of what we don’t! Download the ‘From the Chew to the Poo’ Teachers Pack
