This week, year 6 took part in a heart dissection of a lamb’s heart. The children found the front of the heart by locating the coronary sulcus (an diagonal artery which is always found on the front of the heart). Next, they located major veins and arteries and used red and blue blue straws to show where the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood travels through the heart. The children were intrigued to handle a real heart and this has reinforced their learning about the heart.
