Science - Animals including Humans
To continue our topic on ‘Animals including Humans’, we did an investigation for Science Week. So far during this topic, we have explored the different system in our body.

We then repeated this to see how exercise (run, sprint, star jumps) impacts our pulse as well as how our body recovers.
