Heart dissection on  12/02/20

On Wednesday, Y6s will have the opportunity to take part in investigating and dissecting sheep hearts. I have explained this to the children and that it is optional - if they do not wish to take take they will not have to be in the room. Visit the link below to see pictures of Y6 last year dissecting sheet hearts: https://twitter.com/Miss_JL4

If your child does not wish to take part in the dissection, please inform the office by email or phone.

Many thanks,

 

Miss Lane.
