Y6 Science Blood & Heart Rate

26th May 2016

Heart Rate

This week in science, Year 6 have been out on the yard learning about how their heart rate is affected by exercise.  They ran and jumped around and then took their pulses and recorded their findings. 

Blood Composition

They also made a model of blood by mixing together red liquid (which represented plasma) with cereal,   marshmallows and sweets (which represented white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets).  Using that model as a guide, they then created a three dimensional drawing in their science books.
