Year 6 have been learning about the heart. We looked at the different parts and their functions. To investigate this further, we dissected a lamb’s heart.
We then investigated how the heart pumps blood by creating a model. We created a valve to show how blood is prevented from going the wrong way.
As part of our PE lesson, we looked at pulse rates and how they increase. We discovered that our hearts beat faster with more intense activities.
KS2 had a Zoom session with a scientist. We were able to ask her questions and she gave us some fascinating answers.
We also explored what blood is made up of and its function. We represented this using different ingredients.
