Animals have evolved different teeth and different jaws depending on their diet. Cats are carnivores and have very sharp teeth (incisors and canines) for tearing flesh, whereas horses are herbivores and have mainly flat teeth (molars) for grinding grass to a pulp.
  • What would they look like?
  • Would they be able to talk?
  • Would it be difficult to eat?
  • Would they have to change what they eat?


Most snakes have teeth, although the number and arrangement is different in each species. They normally curve backwards and are used to drag food down the throat rather than for chewing. Because snakes cannot chew their food, some can even separate their jaws in order to eat large prey.

Some snakes have fangs; these are hollow teeth that inject poison, called venom, into their prey.

Teeth - Lesson 1 


This lesson will teach you all about your teeth, the different names for your teeth and how to keep them healthy! There is also an experiment in there with an apple so have one ready! 


Below is the lesson powerpoint - Go through this first 

There are links to different videos - You must watch them all 

Finally, there are three activities. The first activity wants you to read the names of the teeth and the definitions. You must match them correctly. The second sheet wants you to write down the jobs of each of the teeth using the key words given. Finally, the last tasks wants you to research different animals teeth. Look at the two pictures you have been given and think which animal they may be from and why you think that

The Digestive System!


This week is all about what happens to our food when we eat it. I would like you to start by looking at the picture below and decide which is the odd one out!


Think about the similarities and differences. You can also think about:

  • what they look like
  • what they do
  • where they might be found.

Though teeth aren't organs they are important for digestion. Teeth start the process of breaking up food into smaller pieces.


Can you remember what you learned about teeth last week?


Test your knowledge by thinking about:

  • The names of different teeth.
  • Why animals have different teeth.
  • What would happen if we toothbrushes didn't exist?
What is Digestion? - Lesson 2

What does digestion mean?


Digestion is the act of softening & changing food so that the body can absorb it for energy & growth.

See if you can work out where your stomach is by swallowing.


Did you know? It takes 10 seconds for food to reach your stomach after being swallowed


The digestive system includes different parts of your body working together to change the food into what we need before taking the food to where it needs to be. 


I would like you to ask someone to draw around you. Either on a big piece of paper, wallpaper or outside using chalk. Can you draw and label the digestive system on your body? Use the picture below to help you!


Can you use an arrow to guess the route that the food takes through your body? Look below at the steps or click the link to help you. You can also add what happens at each stop along the system. 

1. Mouth: saliva softens the food and starts breaking it down. Then travels down the oesophagus.

2. Stomach: stomach acid and digestive juices break down the food. Food is squeezed and churned to break it down. 

3. Small intestine: proteins, fats and vitamins are absorbed from the food. The walls of the small intestine are lined with tiny finger like villi expanding the surface area so it can absorb more.

4. Large intestine: absorbs the water from the remaining waste to be used by the body before it is excreted through the anus.

Activity 2

Below is a link which shows you how to recreate the digestive system at home.

All you need is a food bag, food (crackers and bananas work well!), pure orange juice, water, a pair of tights, a bowl and a plastic cup with a hole.


If you don't have everything above you can use different things you can find in at home. Or there is also a video to show you what happens in the experiment to recreate your digestive system.

Here are a couple of scientific activities to keep you motivated! The first is all about using scientific skills to create a Storm in a Cup. Click the link to watch a video or just follow the directions below. Can you recreate a different type of weather at home? Maybe the sun, rain or a rainbow?


The second task is about healthy eating. Click the link to download the game.

Mix up a storm

  1. Give everyone a jar. Everyone should fill the jar with water until it’s around three quarters full.
  2. Add one drop of washing-up liquid to the water.
  3. Add a sprinkle of sand. Most tornadoes are transparent – they get their grey colour from the dust and mud they pick up from the ground. We’re adding the sand to be able to see ours.
  4. Everyone should tightly screw on the lid of their jar and make sure it doesn’t leak.
  5. Turn the jar upside down and shake it vigorously in a circular motion.
  6. Turn the jar back up the right way and put it down on a flat surface. Watch your storm brew, swirl, and dissipate.


Before you begin

  • Print the ‘Food-doku puzzles, templates and pictures’ sheet. There should be one per group. Cut out the food images on the last page with scissors.


Get puzzled

  1. Have a look at the Food-doku puzzles and food symbols.
  2. To complete a smaller grid, place the food symbol cut-outs into the empty squares in a way that every grid contain at least one fruit, vegetable and carbohydrate, and a protein, piece of dairy or glass of water.
  3. In larger grids, each row or column should contain each food symbol only once.



Art - Hand line design.

These are very unusual times and sometimes we can get frustrated that we can't do what we want or see those we treasure most. It's important to focus on all the things that we are able to do which we might not usually have chance to. This is called being optimistic.


I would like you to complete the task below either by drawing a picture or writing a sentence.

This week, there are 2 tasks. You can choose one or both. They are all about positivity. One is thinking about how we can change a negative situation into a positive one. The other is all about the positive things about you! Enjoy!


Database - 

I have set a 2do on Purple Mash. It is where you create your own database. I will put pictures on step by step how to do this. 

A database is where you collect information about different things. 
You could collect data about 


- Characters in your favourite book/film

- Favourite food in your family 

- Countries around the world 

- Animals around the world 

- Cars 





This week, why not have a go at following and creating instructions. These are called algorithms in computing. On Monday, you will have a 2do on your Purple Mash directing you to 2Logo. You will need to put instructions to make it draw. Once you've had a play have a go at the activities below.
