Parts of a heart

Today linked to their science unit and quality text in English, Year 6 had the  opportunity to have a look at an animal heart!

They thoroughly enjoyed the experience (although it was a bit gruesome) and learnt about the four chambers of the heart and the different blood vessels that lead to and from the heart. They were also able to cut the heart open to see the inside more clearly!

Imperial War Museum

Today, Year 6 visited the Imperial War Museum North which is located on The Quays in Greater Manchester. We spent the morning walking through a timeline of history from the First World War to the present day while exploring a vast collection of over 2,000 objects linked to war. Also, we watched a 360 degree cinematic Big Picture Show that focused on the war at home and included stories of a range of people that lived through World War Two.  Finally, while walking around the displays many of the children had a chance to speak to some volunteer veterans who told them what life in the forces was like.

Animal Town

Today we used our excellent inference skills to ask and answer questions about visiting Animal Town.

  • Why was the kola hiding in the tree?
  • Which animal would be suited to working in the health clinic?
  • Can you give suggestions as to the occupations of the  animals in the picture?

What questions would you ask?
