Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

YEAR 6 REALLY PUTTING THEIR HEART INTO SCIENCE

Year 6 had the pleasure and experience of dissecting 30 lambs hearts recently as part of their Science learning about circulation and the heart.

Alongside their experience making blood as part of Science Week, they got to undertake some of the slightly ‘ickier’ part of scientific enquiry - dissection.

They discovered the four chambers of the heart, different arteries and veins and got to look at the different sides to compare muscle thickness before trying to find the valves to understand how they work.
