Year 5/6 are working in Unity while holding their BHF Dodgeball Tournament. Remembering the 5 rules- dodge, duck, dip, dive and DODGE!! to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Each team has come up with their team name, slogan and entrance music. All the children showed great teamwork and sportsmanship, encouraging and supporting whichever team was playing. Sponsorship amounts are starting to come in and the big total will be revealed in assembly.
Year 5 & 6 joined together to complete a day of activities, fully immersing themselves in their new project Blood Heart.
Following a carousel of activities the children worked scientifically to understand the human circulatory system. They learned where different organs were positioned within the body and how the heart had to send oxygenated blood to these and muscles too.
Another of the activities involved handling a sheep’s heart: taking part in a dissection and looking internally to identify the different chambers of the heart. Discussions were had to show understanding of how the heart and lungs work together to oxygenate the blood and the direction that blood passes through these chambers.
The final activity in the carousel was to work artistically and create a 3D model of a human heart: showing the veins and arteries.
