Brainy Year 6C

Our brain is an amazing tool that when used well can help us to become the best learners we can be. So how can we use our brains better? And how can we become the best learners we can be? Well this term, our class has been researching various aspects of learning and investigating different ways to make ourselves better learners.

Together we have discovered all the different parts of our brain and their function. We have found that some brain parts are responsible for our long term and short term memories whereas others are responsible for our feelings and emotions.

The highlight of our iLearn unit was when we were given an opportunity to dissect a lamb's brain. This experience reinforced what we have been learning about as we tried to locate all of the brain parts through probing and dissecting. We wish we could do it again!
