Our next piece of writing in year 6 is an explanation text on how the human heart functions.

As part of the planning, we observed a heart dissection, looking at the details of the heart, how it works and what can go wrong. Pupils were able to see in details the different parts of the heart, including the blood vessels, and how they moved blood around the body. Some were even brave enough to touch the different sections!

A huge thank you to Paul’s Traditional Deli for donating the lamb’s hearts to our school.
