Follow Cam on his quest for a 'normal' life in this exciting novel....would YOU accept a donor heart from a pig?


English: For our first unit, we will be looking at non-chronological reports and building up to producing our own version all about blood! We will look at common features amongst a range of non-chronological reports and use our class model text ‘The Heart’ to base our own reports on. Following this, we will be writing our very own instructions on how to make a healthy snack – we will explore healthy ingredients and have fun tasting our own creations.


Topic: Our first topic is ‘Blood Heart’ which enables us to explore the human body, specifically the circulatory system. We will learn why the heart is so important, what is does and how we can keep our hearts healthy.

We began our Blood Heart topic by observing the dissection of a lamb heart - pupils found this fascinating!



Homework for the half term: Please see added document for our topic homework. We will also have weekly spelling homework and an expectation to read at home 3 times a week, which should be recorded in reading records.
