Year 3/4 Mr. Davies 2014/15

This week the children have been learning about blood and what it consists of.  They have been researching the roles of the red blood cells, white blood cells and the platelets and how they collectively keep us alive.  The children also thoroughly enjoyed using everyday ingredients to make their own blood! They used 'Cheerios' for red blood cells, marshmallows for white blood cells and purple and pink pompoms for platelets.  Well done to all the children for their hard work and enthusiasm!

This week, the pupils have been finding out what happens to our bodies before, during and after exercise.  They conducted a heart rate test, timing their own rates at rest, after one minute of exercise and then finally after two minutes rest.  They displayed excellent organisation skills when collating their results on a line graph as well as writing up their experiences and findings.  Well done all!
This week, the pupils in Class 3 have been looking at the human body and learning about the major organs that are so important to us.  They have also been discussing what we can do in order to maintain a healthy body such as exercise, a balanced diet, plenty of quality sleep and exercising our brains.  They also discussed what we should 'cut back' on in order to help ourselves.
