Welcome to Birch Class!
This week in science, we have been learning about the biological composition of our blood. The children learnt about the functions of the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma as well as their importance within the circulatory system. We used a variety of household items and ingredients to represent each element to make our own 'blood'. We used Cheerios and red food colouring to show red blood cells and marshmallows to represent white blood cells.
National Smile Day 2019
As part of National Smile Day 2019 on 4th October, the children were encouraged to do a small act of kindness for other people around school, the community or home to make someone smile. In Birch class we took some smiling selfies to share with you all! We hope these make you smile just as much as they made us! :-D
Heart spark day!
As part of our new topic 'Heartbeat' the children participated in a live dissection of a heart! They children investigated the different parts of the heart and thoroughly enjoyed taking part and exploring this complex organ!
