Our term 1 topic is Blood Heart.


Let’s explore our circulatory system!  We will dissect an animal heart, finding out about the different parts and how the blood flows. Afterwards, we will write a report of the experience and use models to learn more about how the circulatory system works.  We will measure our heart rates and test how it is affected by exercise. In Art and design, we will make model hearts.   As part of our music work, we will use our bodies as percussion instruments and feel our pulse.  We will learn about how smoking affects the heart and write adverts to persuade people to stop smoking. We will visit the ‘Give blood’ website, and make a flow diagram to illustrate the circulation process.  At the end of our topic, we will create fact files to share what we have learned.
