This half term Year 6 are learning about the circulation system. We started by exploring the components that make up our blood. The children concocted blood smoothies using strawberries, marshmallows, sprinkles and fruit juice.
The strawberries represent the red blood cells.
The marshmallows represent the white blood cells.
The sprinkles represent the platelets.
The fruit juices represents the plasma.
See if your child can remember the function of each component!
