The Circulatory System
In Science we will be learning about the heart, our blood and our circulatory system. We will also be learning about Light and how we see things.
w/c 12.10.20 Science - The Circulatory System
This week, Y6W have had a science week! They have found out all about how the heart functions, why we need blood and what its components are and the impact of diet and exercise on the body. To show their understanding, they later wrote a non-chronological report about the circulatory system.
