Welcome to Year 5 science!

This half term, we will be exploring the parts of the heart and the function of the valves. We'll also be using VR to dive into a blood vessel to discover what blood is actually made of.

In addition to all of this, we'll be exploring how exercise affects our heart rate and health, so pack your trainers!
