Year 6

Autumn 2 Project: Blood Heart

 

In Autumn 2 Year 6 will be immersed in an exciting project involving the exploration of our heart, lungs and circulatory system. 


At the start of our project, we’ll dissect an animal heart, finding out about the different parts and how the blood flows. Afterwards, we’ll write a report of the experience and use software and models to learn more about how the circulatory system works. We’ll measure our heart rates and test how it is affected by exercise. In D&T, we’ll make model hearts and test materials. How to keep our hearts healthy will be a key lesson and we’ll learn about how smoking affects the heart and write adverts to persuade people to stop smoking. We’ll visit the ‘Give blood’ website, and make a flow diagram to illustrate the circulation process. Towards the end we will discuss how we are going to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and carry out our fund-raising events.

 

We’ll also create fact files to share what we have learned.


Help your child prepare for their project

Your heart will be with you forever, so it’s important to look after it. Why not research heart-healthy foods together and try out delicious, nutritious recipes that will make your heart happy? You could also set up an obstacle course in the garden and take each other’s pulse before and after exercise to see how it changes. Alternatively, you could further investigate advice for keeping your heart healthy and make an informative poster. Do also ensure that you access the knowledge organiser for this project (Blood Heart- available on the website) so that you help your child learn as much of the basic expected knowledge as possible.
