Learning about the Heart – Maple Class

In Maple Class we have been learning about the circulatory system.  We have loved finding out about our blood, what it contains and how it is pumped around our body by the heart.  We created clay sculptures of our hearts, making sure that we added details like the four chambers, arteries and veins and importantly that it was the size of our fist.

We really enjoyed looking at the white and red blood cells and blood clots as electron microscope images – they were amazing!
