Excited BISP Year 6 students put their learning about the heart into action during their recent visit to the secondary science labs! With eager hands and curious minds, the students had the opportunity to dissect hearts and explore the inner workings of this vital organ.
This was part of their consolidation of learning, where they had learnt about the 4 main chambers of the heart, what blood was made of and how it functions within the circulatory system. Whilst dissecting the hearts and following health and safety protocols, the students managed to locate the aorta, ventricles and atrium. They also saw blood clots learnt how to tell which way round the heart was oriented.
It was a thrilling experience that consolidated their knowledge and sparked a deeper understanding of the heart’s function. A big thank you to the Secondary science team for making this possible!
