All Y6 children had their science topic brought to life when the award winning ‘Science Buddies’ visited to help enrich their science topic.

They have been learning this term about the role of the heart and other organs in the body and also how to keep themselves healthy. They discussed healthy diets, food choices and also had the opportunity to see and touch a real lamb’s heart and see the various areas with ‘hands on experience’.

The children quoted this experience as being:

“Brilliant!”

“Can’t believe you could see the chambers, the arteries and the veins.”

“It made all the previous work suddenly feel real, it’s ok watching videos and looking at books but this was real!”

“That has really made me think about how important it is to look after my heart!”
