P1 learning about the human body

As part of our topic “My body and feelings”, P1 are learning all about the human body – parts of the body, their functions, what makes us healthy or unhealthy. Ted’s mum who is a doctor came in and did workshops all day with our P1s which included some fantastic activities looking at x-rays, testing out equipment like torches, tongue depressors, reflex hammers and stethoscopes, learning about the digestive system through exploring food moving through the intestines, and using syringes to fill up with blood (really coloured liquid). Lots of amazing hands-on activities, the children learned some amazing new facts and had a great time. Thank you to ted’s mum for a very engaging workshop!
