Laude BSV Year 6 students dissect a heart

At Laude The British School of Vila-real (Castellón) learning is amazing. Last week, our Year 6 students learned about how the heart works. And they took part in a lesson dissecting a heart!

As part of their science unit about human biology, Year 6 had the opportunity to explore the different chambers of the heart as well as identify the different parts of the heart they had previously learnt. Many brave children also held the dissected heart and its accompanying parts.

They thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt about the four chambers of the heart and the different blood vessels that lead to and from the heart. Pupils noticed a big difference between the left and the right side of the heart and were able to cut the heart open to see the inside more clearly!
