Year 6 The Circulatory System


Year 6 have been investigating the circulatory system and have studied its structure and functions. They were tasked with imagining the journey of a blood cell through the different parts of the heart and body. They could be as imaginative and dramatic as they liked. They have brilliantly combined their creative writing skills with their scientific knowledge. 

After a few seconds we arrived in the lungs. Finally,

refreshment. We were showered in oxygen and then sent

down through the pulmonary vein to the left atrium where

we were going to be pumped off. Yet again we were

cramped together, but this time we were oxygenated. Now

we were pumped away by the left ventricle through the

aorta, and now it was time to go sight-seeing around the

body. This is my favourite bit; you go all the way to the head

and down to the toes. Lovely. Suddenly, my friends were

cut off from me and went up as I was going down. They

were going through the superior vena cava, and I was

going through the inferior. Those lucky cells. After a while

we met up back at the right atrium, ready to start again.
