In our science lesson yesterday, rather than completing another worksheet,  the Year 6 children got active and re-enacted the passage of blood through the circulatory system.  It was more complicated than we at first thought – particularly when we picked up the pace! Each person  had to carry oxygenated or deoxygenated blood cells to the right or left side of the heart, to the lungs or  to different body parts arranged around the room.  Sounds pretty gory but the children really had to think carefully about the blood’s journey around the body  and  everyone agreed that they learnt a lot more than if they had simply read about this incredible function of our bodies.
