Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry. Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system. Now, surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy, and made groundbreaking discoveries about valves. I wonder what we might uncover? Why do people give blood? Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. Kickstart a campaign to spread the word about the damage caused to the lungs and heart by smoking. Hearts pound, flutter and maybe skip a beat. What makes your heart race? Is it a secret? Cross my heart, I won’t tell.
Welcome to Discovery and Endurance home learning tasks
Children will be given a weekly Maths and/or English task to complete.
In addition, they should choose one homework task from the grid each week. Once the children have completed an activity, they can colour in the piece with the corresponding colour to the column. Please aim to choose a different colour each week to ensure a variety of skills are being practised and applied. The aim is for the children to have completed one homework from each subject area by the end of the term.
All sheets and loose pieces of paper should be stuck into the home learning book.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Brown and Mrs Vick
Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back in the following Wednesday.
