Animals including humans

Autumn Term 1: Animals including humans


During the programme of study, pupils will be taught to:

  • identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood
  • recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function
  • describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.



Inspired by the clever cutouts in Anatomy: A Cutaway Look Inside the Human Body by Hélène Druvert, pupils will consolidate their scientific learning by creating a page for an information text to describe and explain one of the scientific processes explored complete with diagrams, lift-up flaps and captivating cutout.
