Today 6B have been continuing their Science Unit ‘Arty’s Broken Heart!’. The children have been learning about the human heart and how it works around their body, as a circulatory system!

6B had the opportunity to see a lamb heart dissection today! Have a look below!

Please answer the following questions:

How does the blood travel around the heart? (deoxygenated and oxygenated)

What are the three different blood vessels and their functions?


  1. The three blood vessels are vein, capillaries and artery.
    Firstly, the blood travels through to the right atrium and then the pulmonary and tricuspid valve to the right ventricle. After that, it travels through the pulmonary artery. Furthermore, it gore in the left atrium and mitral valve. This will then lead to the left ventricle where it travels to the rest of the body.

  2. This I was weirded out by the the heart ♥️ but it was very fun to have fun with my friends and mr miss janjua 🙋‍♂️🙆‍♀️

  3. The blood travels from the right atrium to the right ventricle then the right ventricle pumps the blood to the lunge where it can be oxygenated.
    The oxygenated blood is brought back to the heart by the pulmonary veins which enter the left atrium.

    The three blood vessels are veins, artery’s and capillaries.
    Not finished.

  4. What are the three different blood vessels and their functions?
    The three blood vessels are veins, artery and capillaries.
    Veins carry blood towards the heart.
    Artery’s carry blood away from the heart.
    Capillaries carry oxygen and nutrients.

  5. 1) Blood travels around the Right Atruim if it’s deoxygenated, then it goes to the lungs and becomes oxygenated.
    Blood travels to the Left Atruim if it’s oxygenated and ready to be transported around the body.
    2) The three blood vessels are:
    The smallest one is the capillaries and the largest is the artery.
    Their functions are to be used for transportation around the body. The red blood cells,white blood cells and platelets travel in these to give blood to different part of the bodies and also to heal areas that have been damaged.
