Y6 Science Heart Dissection

On Tuesday 31 January, Year 6 were invited by Mr Hughes to come and see a heart dissection. It was very interesting and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mr Hughes showed us a couple of the valves and even let a few people touch it! At first, everyone thought it was a bit gruesome but in the end it turned out to not be as bad as they thought it would be.

We learned what a heartbeat sounded like (lub-dub) and even used stethoscopes to test it.

When we got back to class, our teacher asked us to write an explanation text about how the heart works and everybody worked very hard on it. Everyone’s explanation texts were very detailed and their labelled diagrams looked incredible.

The whole of Year 6 would like to say thank you to Mr Hughes and that we all loved this once-in-a-lifetime experience. It was brilliant!
