  Blood Heart

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s explore our circulatory system!

At the start of our project, we’ll dissect an animal heart, finding out about the different parts and how the blood flows. Afterwards, we’ll write a report of the experience and use software and models to learn more about how the circulatory system works. We’ll use a data logger to measure our heart rates and test how it is affected by exercise. In D&T, we’ll make model hearts, and test materials before making a stethoscope. As part of our music work, we’ll use our bodies as percussion instruments and feel our pulse. We’ll read shape poetry, and write poems inspired by the heart. We’ll learn about how smoking affects the heart and write adverts to persuade people to stop smoking. We’ll visit the ‘Give blood’ website, and make a flow diagram to illustrate the circulation process.

At the end of the ILP, we’ll create fact files to share what we have learned.

ILP focus Science
English Non-chronological reports, poetry, slogans and adverts, biographies, stories
Science Human circulatory system, measuring heart rate, history of blood groups, lifestyle effects
Art & design Modelling and sculpture, abstract art

D&T Selecting tools and equipment, healthy recipes, product packaging, working models

Help your child prepare for their project

Your heart will be with you forever, so it’s important to look after it. Why not research heart-healthy foods together and try out delicious, nutritious recipes that will make your heart happy? You could also set up an obstacle course in the garden and take each other’s pulse before and after exercise to see how it changes. Alternatively, you could investigate advice for keeping your heart healthy and make an informative poster.

Announcements

Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
