Hearts and art
What a busy week we have had in Year 6! In art, we have built on our knowledge of Islamic patterns and created a design for our lino cut. In PSHE, we have been learning about the effects and dangers of legal and illegal drugs. In computing, we have finished our data handling and spreadsheet topic and have now begun coding. In history, we have used concurrent timelines to aid our understanding of British and world civilizations. Not to mention maths, PE and production rehearsals!
In between all of this, we also found time for a science day. To consolidate their understanding of the structure and function of the human heart, the children observed the dissection of a lamb’s heart; the bravest ones even touched the cardiac muscle and valve tissue to feel how strong it was. Back in the classroom, we have also learned about the components of blood and its circulation around the body.
Have a look at the science section for more photos from this day.
