Year 6 enjoyed making fake blood using sweets to represent the red and white blood cells and platelets. We used coloured water to represent the plasma which carried these co mponents.
It has been a brilliant welcome by Year 6 to the start of the term! It is amazing how quickly we have all settled down to our learning.
We have also enjoyed the lift off day to our new topic for term 1 … Fit for Life! All day we discussed and researched different types of super foods that could benefit the health of our heart, lungs, liver, brain and skin. With all this information, we designed our own super food smoothie ingredients and made the smoothies. Some of them were delicious! Our special guest, Mr Curtis from the kitchens, came up to do some Masterchef judging and talk about the health benefits of their ingredients. A lovely lift off.
