During this term in Science, we will be studying the topic, Animals Including Humans. Throughout this topic, we will be focusing on understanding the human circulatory system, allowing us to carry out some very exciting investigations, such as factors that influence heart rate and the differences between human and animal circulatory systems. As Year 6 prepare for the transition to secondary school, we believe that it is vital to understand the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. The children will be made aware of the impact a healthy heart has upon us holistically.
We will then go on to study Electricity in further detail: learning about how our understanding of electricity has changed over time; how to draw more complex circuits using the correct symbols; planning our own investigations and deciding how to control variables; reporting the findings; and making further predictions based on the results
