This module builds on learning about the human body from Key Stage 1, when they learned that humans and other animals need water, food and air in order to survive, and also during lower Key Stage 2, when they investigated the muscular, skeletal and digestive systems. In this module children learn about the human circulatory system and how it enables their bodies to function. They find out about the main parts of the circulatory system: the heart, blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries) and blood, and how these work together to deliver oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body. They will find out how the heart works, the main components of blood and the function of the different types of blood vessels. They will also learn about how water is transported through the body and develop their understanding of the importance of water to human health.
