What does your heart look like?

Under the guidance of Mrs Leach, Year 6 were lucky enough to be part of a heart dissection at The Bewdley School. The heart that we dissected was actually a pig’s heart, like the one used in the book, ‘Pig Heart Boy’. A pig and a human heart have lots of similarities. For example, they’re approximately the same size, they both have four chambers and the blood flows in the same way.
