What are we learning?

BLOOD HEART

HEART DISSECTION

This half term, we are learning all about the circulatory system.  To launch our topic, pupils were given the opportunity to dissect a pig's heart.  This proved to be a fascinating learning opportunity with children able to identify the major blood vessels as well as the four chambers inside.  Children also used their fingers to track the flow of blood through the heart.  The pupils who took part really enjoyed the 'hands on' experience, with shouts of, 'Wow! That's awesome!', 'Have you seen this?', and 'That was amazing!', confirming their feelings!  PHOTOS TO FOLLOW.
