On Thursday, 05th October 2017 our Year 5 students were very busy learning about the heart.  Part of syllabus to dissect a pig's heart. Our students were very impressed with the whole process. 

Some important information about the Human Heart - so we learn in the process too: 

The human heart weighs less than a pound (450g). It beats 100,000 times a day and over 2.5 billion times in the average lifetime. Your system of blood vessels – arteries, veins and capillaries – is over 60,000 miles long – enough to go around the world more than twice.

This is not just an amazing spectacle; it is the ‘heart’ of human life. Without your heart your body would quickly cease to work. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the Western world.
