Many thanks to Dr Gemmell who supported in Year 6 with their ‘Blood Heart’ topic this afternoon. The pupils were captivated at the live dissection of the heart and learned a huge amount about the role of this organ in the human body’s circulatory system.
There have been a lot of science experiments taking place this week. Year 3 are finding out what happens to flowers and plants when placed into coloured water whilst Year 5 have dissected tulips. In Year 6, the children have taken apart owl pellets in order to investigate the diet of owls. Great hands on learning!
Year 5’s homework related to their ‘Stargazers’ topic is fantastic! The level of detail within their rocket models is superb and there are some extremely creative examples on show, using a variety of different materials.
Year 6 have dissected owl pellets today as part of their topic on evolution. These pellets contain the indigestible remains of the animals eaten by the owls, which are regurgitated. A huge range of bones was found, as well as stones and fur.
Year 5 had their WOW day today building marble loop the loops as an introduction to their ‘Scream Machine’ topic. Mission accomplished for this group!
