Year 5 had an amazing opportunity to work scientifically and investigate practically the physiology of a heart by dissecting a sheep’s heart. The children were able to find for themselves the heart chambers, arteries, veins, valves and heart strings. We were so impressed with the children’s knowledge and ability to work forensically. Clearly we have some budding medics/surgeons amongst us.
