Year 6 - Science: Heart and Circulatory System

We have been learning about the heart and circulatory system in Science so what better way to get to grips with this topic than giving every pupil the opportunity to dissect a lambs heart? It was such a unique experience for everyone and helped us to better understand how the heart is a muscle that pumps blood to the lungs and around the body.

We learnt about the four chambers of the heart, the aorta, ventricles and valves as well.

What was really interesting was comparing the left and right side of the heart the difference in thickness of the heart walls.

Not for the squeamish, especially on Halloween!
