Hello Year 5 & 6!
This term our topic, 'Blood Heart', has a science focus. We will be learning all about parts of the heart and their functions, as well as the role of the whole circulatory system. There will be many practical aspects of this topic, from making heart and blood models, to dissecting animal hearts.
Alongside the science aspect of the topic, we will be engrossed in the text, 'Pig-Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman. The story follows the life of a 13 year old boy, Cameron. All he wants is a normal life. But most normal kids don't need heart transplants. So there's this doctor. He says there's a chance for him. But he also says it's experimental, controversial and risky. And it's never been done before.
