Pupils in our year 1 class have been creating their own set of lungs for our science project about the human body. The children experimented with what would happen to their breathing after exercise and discussed inhaling air and exhaling air.

The children then created a set of lungs using household materials such as plastic bags and straws to see how our lungs expand when we breath in air, and what happens when that air comes out again.

All of the children really engaged with the subject matter, with Amelia saying ‘I loved learning about how we inhale and exhale air’.

Lucas added, ‘I really enjoyed finding out about how our breathing changes after exercise by going for a run on the playground!’

Well done to all of our children for some brilliant work.
