Year 6 The Circulatory System

BansteadPrepSchool

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. 

I begin at my starting point, the right atrium. I’ve had so many good

memories here, but I am ready for another adventure.

I work hard to remove the vile carbon dioxide and replace it with my

best friend, oxygen-poor blood, I take that from the body and then

pump it to the right ventricle. While that’s going on my brother is

working at the left atrium and he is removing the disgusting carbon

dioxide. He has already received oxygen-rich blood from the King, the

lungs, and that pumps it to the left ventricle.

Then me, who now is in the right ventricle, pumps blood to the lungs,

and on the way, I pick up oxygen and remove the repulsive carbon

dioxide. My brother again who's in the left ventricle, pumps blood to

the rest of the body to keep everything working properly. The left

ventricle which my brother is in, is highly dangerous because it is very

high in oxygen and very low in carbon dioxide.
