Elder Y6 Science
The year 6 children are learning all about the human body this term. So far they have found out about blood vessels: arteries, veins and capillaries. The most exciting was when they got to see an actual heart. Mrs. Champion dissected an ox heart for the children to see the different part. They were fascinated to see how a valve looks like strings. Also, they found out that the lub-DUB sound that you hear from a beating heart is from the valves opening and closing.
