Meet Alfie. Alfie regularly plays his favourite online game and has been talking for the past few weeks to another gamer he met online. The other gamer has invited Alfie round to his house, so they can play the game together and build their friendship in person. Alfie is not sure what to do. What advice would you give Alfie? What might be the risks or benefits of meeting up? If you were in his situation, what would you do? Leave your thoughts in a comment on this post.
In science lessons this term, we have been learning about the human body. Last week, we developed our understanding of the stages of the digestive system by recreating the process of digesting food. We tracked a piece of cake as it travelled from the mouth to the stomach, through to the small and larges intestines and then to the final stage of excrement. Take a look at the photo slideshow and leave a comment sharing your experiences of this lesson. Can you describe the stage of the digestive system that we used a pair of stockings for? What did the orange juice represent? What was the most memorable part?
