Science - This half term we are going to explore the human circulatory system. We will look at the different components that make up this vital system in our body and how they work together to keep blood flowing and delivering oxygen and nutrients to different organs. We will compare the human circulatory system with that of other animals.
We found and measured our pulse rates and began to investigate how this changes during exercise and the effect this has on our heart.
Literacy - We also began to read ‘Pig Heart Boy’ by the acclaimed author Malorie Blackman which looks at the decision a family needs to make to save the main character’s life. WE will write a balanced argument based on the book.
