Good afternoon Year Three, 


This afternoon's investigation is all about your heart! Put your hand on the left side of your chest; can you feel your heartbeat? Right now, it's probably going at a steady pace because you're sat down learning. But what happens when you start to move? 


Take part in the activities and record your results in the table. Your teachers would love to see lots of pictures of all the different things you did to elevate (that means make it beat faster) your heart rate and explore the science behind your bodies.
