Heart & Lungs Up Close!

We were so lucky to have the opportunity to investigate a real heart and lungs up close.  Mr Saunders kindly gave up his time to show us how they link together and point out important features which we had learnt about.  We looked at a pig’s heart and lungs as they are very close to our own in terms of size and appearance.  It was so interesting to be able to see the aorta and chambers of the heart and how the respiratory and digestive system are located to close to each other.  B1 asked some really interesting questions such as what happens when we cough and what the lymph nodes for.

Here are some pictures from the afternoon:
