Year 6 created some portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso. It was really tricky to work in an abstract style but they did a great job!
Year 6 have had a busy week working on diaries, self portraits and thinking about the journey of a red blood cell. Here are some pictures of some of their Art work.
Year 6 got hands on with Science by watching a dissection of a pig's heart. They started by looking at the structure of the heart, then cut through the outer layers to reveal the four chambers as well as arteries and valves. Once they had watched the dissection, they put on their rubber gloves and had a chance to hold the heart and look closely at this amazing organ. Well done, Year 6!
As part of our Science topic, My Body, Year 6 have been looking at what makes up our blood. To explore this, we have made our own blood! We used vegetable oil for plasma, cheerios dyed red for red blood cells, mini marshmallows for white blood cells and crushed cheerios for the platelets. We then talked about the functions of each of these cells and the vital role they play in our bodies.
