In science we have been finding out about the circulatory system. We pretended to be red blood cells going from the heart to be oxygenated at the lungs and then travelling through the arteries to transport the oxygen, nutrients and water to different parts of the body before travelling back up the veins to the heart to start the journey again. We then wrote class definitions for the circulatory system before working as a group to make a life sized diagram of the circulatory system.
