To kick off their new topic in science, Year 6 looked at the composition of blood. As part of this lesson, they had a go at making their own models of blood using different objects to represent different things. Inside of this jar we have red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, plasma and haemoglobin. 
Did you know that it is the substance called haemoglobin that gives your blood it’s red colour?  

Conductors and Insulators

As part of their electricity unit, Year 6 had a lesson all about conductors and insulators. They learnt the difference between the two and investigated using a range of different materials in the classroom. The children found that the drawer handle is a conductor and lets electricity flow through it easily, which is why the bulb in the circuit was lit.
