Year 6 have launched themselves into their new science topic ‘Feel the Beat’ by learning all about the circulatory system. They discovered there are three parts to the circulatory system: the heart, blood vessels and blood. They had lots of fun creating a class model of the circulatory system outside on the playground before writing their own explanation of how the circulatory system works.
Next, they created their own blood using red coloured cereal hoops, marshmallows, sprinkles and orange juice. Each ingredient represented a different part of our blood: cereal hoops represented the red blood cells, marshmallows represented white blood cells, sprinkles represented platelets and the orange juice represented plasma. The children then took a photo of their blood and used Seesaw to record explanations of the functions of each part.
