Our role this half term is ‘I am a Biologist’
Our Wonder questions are:
What is their job role?
How do you become a biologist?
What do they study?
What can biologists find out about the human body?
To launch our topic we explored the human heart using a pumping heart model. We discussed who would know a lot about the human heart and how would they know. After this, we looked at a case study of Nazifa. In her video, she spoke about how she became a microbiologist.
In P.E, we have developed our teamwork skills by playing games with our eyes closed or not being able to use our hands. This has encouraged us to work well as a team and follow instructions.
