Year 5 have been looking in great detail at the different organs in the human body as part of their recent science work. The children have been learning that although we often consider each body part in isolation, all of them are connected and play a vital role in helping other parts to function.
Central to this is the human heart. Year 5 have learnt how the heart functions, and how it helps to keep all other internal organs working. All pupils have completed a worksheet matching the name of each body part with the role that it carries out. We have also looked at the importance of exercise in keeping the heart healthy.
