Sian from heartbeat came in to school to work with us looking at our bodies and our organs. We worked our way through an information booklet and completed this with her. We looked at our different organs and what their job was in our body.
In particular, we looked at our heart. We studied the different valves and chambers and how we can feel the beating by taking our pulse. We found our pulse on our wrist or our neck and we counted how many beats per minute our heart rate was during rest and then what it was after some exercise.
