Year 4 – Digestive System

on May 15, 2017

This week children in year 4 class have been learning all about the digestive system.

In year Digestive System 4 we have being doing about the Digestive System, we have making a model of the Digestive System in our group we have made mouth, oesophagus. In the next couple of days we put towards a class Digestive System.

Here is how it works:

Mouth: Chews the food

Oesophagus: Pushes the food to the stomach

Stomach: Mushes up the food and acids

Small intestine: Takes out vitamins

Large intestine: Takes water

Anus: Drops the food out

Last week and this week we have been making a digestive system out of junk modelling there is 6 groups and we’ve all been making different parts.

These are some of the organs in the digestive system

Mouth the mouth is a really important because you use it to eat with also it heals really quickly

Oesophagus it squeezes the food with the muscles inside it.

Anus the anus takes all the waste out of your system we made the anus by blowing up a balloon

In year four we have been doing about gruesome facts, they really are disgusting, we are making our own digestive system out of different materials. The model that we made was the large intestine out of card board. The model was just a big digestive system first we made the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, liver, small intestines, large intestines and finally, your anus.

By Brandon, Lilli, Ella & Charlotte.


First, your food goes inside your mouth and your food gets mushed up into horrible mush which makes it easy to go down your oesophagus.

Next, the  food goes down your oesophagus by musculs pushing it down a pipe to the stomach.

After that, it travels into your stomach.The job of the stomach is to break your food down with  green acid.

Then, your small intestine takes vitamins & minrals. Fact : your small intestine is actually your large intestine.

Soon after that, your food enters your large intestine your large intestines job is to takes undigested food from your small intestine and brakes it up.

Last but not least it reaches your anus which makes it all dry and end up in the toilet.

By Eleanor & Grace.


We are doing a newspaper report about a people getting shrank and then getting swallowed by someone. Then we are doing all about what they’’ said’’ and what they felt and what they were covered in.

  • Mouth: chew up and it help it be swallowed and make the food be small.
  • Oesophagus: it is attached to your mouth and your nose and it helps the food go down and it’s slippery.
  • Stomach: squishes all the food up and gets all the poison.
  • Liver: it does the same thing as the stomach accepts for the poison thing.
  • Small intestines: it as this hair that gets the all the fat when it  comes through.
  • Large intestines: it squashes all the food into waste.
  • Anus: The waste comes out of the anus.

In our class we have been making parts of the digestive system.

These are the parts what we are making: mouth, anus, stomach, oesophagus, small intestines, large intestines.

These are all of the parts of the digestive system: mouth, teeth, tongue, salivary gland, oesophagus, liver, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, duodenum, large intestines, small intestines, anus, rectum.

We have made the small intestines. We made it out of pink paper and sellotape

By Isaac and George



Liver and Intestines.

The liver is the largest internal and most complex organ in humans. The liver performs over 500 different functions including fighting off infection, neutralizing toxins, manufacturing proteins and hormones, controlling blood sugar and helping to clot the blood.

The chemicals removed from the blood are sent into our intestines in form of bile. These chemicals are then removed in form of faeces or stool. These chemicals may also be sent into the kidneys where they are filtered out from the body making you need the toilet.


The large intestine is actually shorter than the small intestine, only being about 5 feet long in an adult. The intestines are named for how wide they are, not how long they are. In your lifetime, the digestive system (mouth, oesophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver) will handle over 50 tons of food and liquid!

When someone eats some food, the water content of the body gets absorbed in the large intestine and then in return, the body is hydrated by the organ.

The Whole class is making the digestive system and we are making the stomach out of a plastic yogurt bowl and orange wrapping paper then we are sticking it together with white masking tape. This is our stomach we have made so far.
