On Tuesday 3rd May, the children in Birch, Beech and Oak class enjoyed a heart dissection lesson led by the biology teacher of Featherstone Academy. The children learnt about the different chambers of the heart and had an opportunity to see the size of each section, look at the valves and arteries and even have a feel of the heart muscle to see how strong and thick its walls were to keep all the blood pumping throughout our bodies.

In Science the children have loved dissecting different flowers, to find all the different parts which allows for flowers to reproduce.
In RE the children really enjoyed learning about Mother Teresa, and they discussed how her teaching and the Christians beliefs were linked and completed their own research. In their small groups they each wrote about how they could combine their own thinking with their learning to follow a positive path in life.
