Welcome back to the Spring term.
We had a very busy and exciting term last term and the children made a great start to being in year six. They worked hard and tried their best producing some excellent pieces of work. Now it’s time to look forward so let’s take a look at what we will be doing this term!
This term our topic is Blood heart.
Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry. Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system. We will learn what works 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.
