Blood Smoothies!

Year 6 have been learning about the heart and circulatory system in science.

To find out more about blood and the different components it is made up of, we made some blood smoothies!

The raspberries represented the red blood cells, the marshmallows were the white blood cells, some sprinkles were added to represent platelets and pineapple juice was used to represent the plasma. Having discussed the purpose of each component, and looked at the mixture all together, it was then blended together and everyone had the chance to try some of it if they wanted to!
