Year 6 Heart Dissection

This week, all Year 6 students were able to watch a heart and lung dissection as part of their Science topic, ‘Healthy Bodies’. Ms Smith, from the Secondary Science Department, kindly organised this experience.

  • Heart Dissection 6
  • Heart Dissection 2
  • Heart Dissection 1

The primary children were able to observe the heart/lung dissection via a visualizer and the projection screen. Ms Smith explained where the different parts were located and their different functions. This linked to our classwork and how blood travels around the body delivering oxygen and nutrients to the areas that need it and removing waste products. We have also been looking at different muscles and how, during exercise, they need an increase in oxygen and other nutrients to enable them to work efficiently.

Finally, the children were given the opportunity to investigate the heart and lungs themselves. Wearing gloves, they were able to pick up the organs and locate the different parts.

This was a fabulous experience enabling the children to visualise what they have been learning about in class as part of the primary curriculum. We would like to say a huge thank you to Ms Smith for taking the time to show us this.
