Art - clay hearts
Children in Beech and Oak came together to work in small groups in create a model heart from clay, they used their sculpting skills; using coils and making slip to join elements together. Some groups decided to model a cross-section of a heart - like they had seen in the heart dissection - others focused on forming the aorta and the chambers.
This autumn, our Forest School sessions are linked to our current topic 'Heartbeat' - so far we have been learning about the organs in the human body through a crime scene activity and have also been learning the scientific terms for all the bones in our bodies; the children are working in small groups to build a wooden skeleton.
Heartbeat - Spark Day
To start our new topic 'Heartbeat' the children had the opportunity to watch or participate in the dissection of a heart. The children were able to understand the different parts of a heart and were fascinated by this complex organ.
