WELCOME TO YEAR 6 OWLS

Year 6 Return to School Letter - September 2020
ACADEMIC YEAR 2020/2021
Autumn Term Curriculum Map
09.09.20 - Our first Science lesson - The composition of blood.
Today in our Science lesson, we began by learning the 4 main components of blood. Plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets play important roles within our bodies. We made a "blood smoothie" to show these components and blended it up to show how these tiny cells are invisible to the naked eye! Some of us were even brave enough to try some! If you would like to make a "blood smoothie" at home, you will need:
- White Marshmallows
- Pineapple juice
- White Hundreds and Thousands
- Raspberries or strawberries
