This week Year 6 have been learning all about the circulatory system. They have been investigating what our blood consists of and the use of blood smoothies has certainly gone down a treat!
Year 6 students were able to identify descriptions of red and white blood cells, plasma and platelets. In our smoothie recipe, we used the following ingredients to represent each of these components:
· Strawberries for red blood cells;
· Marshmallows for white blood cells;
· Sprinkles for platelets and
· Pineapple juice for plasma.
Please do ask them all about their learning over the coming week – we have some very exciting experiments planned for our young scientists!
