Science - Debating the appropriate use of medicine as 'drugs'.

In Science this week, Year 6 have completed their ‘Animals, including humans’ topic and have been looking at the impact of drugs and lifestyle on our bodies, as per the Year 6 Science curriculum. In order to deal with the issue of medicines and drugs sensitively, we sorted an assortment of ‘drugs and medicines’ in to three categories: “In me”, “On me” and “In the bin”. We were all so sensible discussing these tricky issues and were able to say how the categories might change for different age groups, as well as being clear on what is appropriate for us and how we can avoid peer pressure.
