Heart Dissection

Heart Dissection

This week, Year 9 classes are concluding their academic year by engaging in heart dissection activities. Miss Mansell and Dr. Patchett initiated the process with 9Sc3, allowing pupils to apply their knowledge of heart structure to a real-life scenario. During the dissection, pupils honed their dissection skills by employing safe techniques for handling biological samples and utilising scalpels to expose the left and right ventricles of a sheep heart. We were particularly astounded by the contrasting thickness of the right ventricle in comparison to the left, as well as the delicate nature of our heart valves despite their crucial role in ensuring proper blood flow direction. Congratulations to the pupils of 9Sc3 for their outstanding participation in this lesson.
