This term we have been learning about the circulatory system. Year 6 have been interested in learning about the heart and how blood travels through a network of blood vessels to the rest of the body.
This week we conducted an investigation to find out how exercise impacts the way our bodies function. From our investigation we discovered the immediate effects of exercise:
- breathing more deeply and more frequently
- feeling hotter
- an increased pulse rate
The children are looking forward to learning more about the main parts and functions of the human circulatory system.
