Oh my goodness- this week has flown by!
We have been so busy thinking about the body this week. After our blood smoothies, we learnt more about the circulatory system, our heart and our lungs. After this we looked at how oxygen is transferred into our blood- this really amazed us. Then we looked closely at our own bodies and how the heart responded to different situations. We looked at our resting pulse rate, our pulse rate when we excised and the our pulse rate after some relaxing mediation. Next week we will be looking deeper into the results and asking further questions. We will also be taking a much deeper look at the heart- this isn't for the faint hearted!
As well as this, we have continued our explanation text about the circulatory system, and the writing the children have produced is outstanding- well done.
In our maths we have been busy looking at measures- the children have worked so well together, working in pairs to work on some more difficult conversions.
Our music is really coming on too- the children are becoming far more confident and applying the new skills that they are learning.
Thank you for a great week, bring on the next one!
