Getting to the heart of the matter…

This afternoon, the Year 5s had their yearly visit from the Science staff from St Benedict’s and had the brilliant opportunity to watch a dissection of a lamb’s heart. It’s safe to say that virtually everybody found it absolutely fascinating and loved seeing all of arteries and chambers of the heart as well as the heart strings!

It really is a wonderful opportunity for them to meet staff from a local secondary school and it’s safe to say that it’s probably a Science lesson that they will never forget!

The Y6s meanwhile were sketching different stages of a human’s life span starting from a foetus up to old age (as we;ve been studying in Science this half-term). They were doing this with our resident artist Miss Hutchings and their work will soon be gracing our Science display board… more to follow…!


Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
