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.
Dear DiaryToday was my first day, on the job. I was so excited to travelaround the circulatory system. I have heard so many goodthings about going that I’m getting kind of nervous.First, I make my way to the Vena Cava, which is in theheart, then I get pushed into the Right Atrium. The rightatrium then contracts, pushing the me through the tricuspidinto the right ventricle.
The right ventricle then contracts, pushing me out of theheart, going through the semi lunar into the pulmonaryartery.Then the pulmonary artery takes me to the lungs wherethey get rid of all the nasty carbon dioxide. It's almost likegetting a free shower. Then I pick up oxygen and head offto the Pulmonary vein.The pulmonary vein caries me to the left atrium. The leftatrium pushes me through the bicuspid then I enter the leftventricle.The left ventricle pushes me through the semi lunar andthen out of the heart to the aorta. Then I get pushedthroughout the body and it was just like a roller costar.
