Year 6 dissect hearts

Last week year 6 had a fantastic experience – learning all about the heart – through dissection! Here’s what they thought:

“At first, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do the dissection, but it was so interesting I had to join in! I’m so glad I did!”
“I wasn’t really sure what it would be like, but I found it really cool, I definitely want to do it again, but maybe with different organs. I definitely learnt more from doing the dissection myself, than if I’d just watched.”
“So good! I am looking forward to doing more experiments like this at secondary school.”
The workshop was perfectly pitched for the age range, and tied in perfectly with the Science objectives in the National Curriculum. The children were fully engaged from the outset, and all participated with enthusiasm and curiosity. Whilst there were back-up activities in place for any who felt uncomfortable, by the time the dissections began every child was keen to be part of the activity. By the end of the session, each child was able to confidently identify many of the main parts of the heart, and use their dissected heart to illustrate this point. I shall certainly be planning to organise this workshop again for next years class.
