Year 6 Homework Project for the next three weeks
Due in: Monday 21st March 2016
The Circulatory System
In Science we have begun our new topic by looking at the human circulatory system, namely the heart, blood vessels and blood that flows through them. The children know how the blood carries oxygen from the lungs (and other things) around the body before returning to the heart, via the lungs, to start the process all over again. Did you know the human heart beats on average 100,000 times a day!
We even dissected a real pig’s heart so we could see some of the main blood vessels and what a real heart looks like!
We want the children to produce what they know about the human circulatory system in any way they wish – this could include a painting, drawing, model (card, paper, clay, lego, material etc), diagram, power point, poem or anything else that the children can come up with – they will be encouraged to be as creative as possible!
We can’t wait to see what the children come up with – if you have any questions please see Mr Preston. Don’t forget they are due in on Monday 21st March.
