Our first topic in Year 6 is ‘Fit for Life’.
In our first week, we focused on our scientific knowledge of the circulatory system: the structure of the heart and the function of each compound of the blood.
We very much enjoyed exploring a real heart and making a representation of the blood out of sweets! We also collaborated well in pairs to create a working model pump to explain how valves work.
Year 6 baking
As part of our Fit For Life topic, Year 6 have been thinking about types of food and how to make healthy choices.
The children made pizzas, hedgehog bread and a cinnamon roll. They chose reduced fat cheese and margarine and added vegetable to dried fruit to their creations. The pizzas were a huge hit!
