Body Pump - The Circulatory System


This term in science, Mrs Dougill and Year 6 will be looking into the biological side of science as they explore the circulatory system. Prophets will be discovering the journey that red blood cells take around the body and the importance of their journey in keeping us alive. Along the way, Year 6 will be finding out the make up of the heart and how this amazing and vital organ works.
