Year 6 Dissect Hearts at Senior School

Year 6 got stuck into their new topic ‘Blood Heart’ last week, visiting the Science Lab at the Senior School to dissect a real heart as part of their science lead topic.

It was certainly a memorable experience; handling a lamb’s heart and making careful incisions to reveal the internal features. Keyala was surprised by how involved her group got: spotting the major blood vessels, feeling the smooth walls of the four chambers and even pulling at the heart strings. They really appreciated Dr Edward’s knowledge of the heart and the Year 13 students who supported. Lots of fun was had and Year 6 are now working on writing their non-chronological reports all about this vital organ.
