Our blood song!

Friday 11th October 2019

This week we have been learning about our hearts and blood (Charlie-may). It is called the circulatory system (Jezley). Our goal was to create a song about blood to help us remember all the information (Hannah). To learn all the facts about blood we carried out research (Rose and Ameliah).

We worked in groups to read books to pick out facts and words (Connor). Then we started to create the lyrics for our song about blood (Adriana and Ameliah). Tash wrote the lyrics on the board (Ella).

When we had all the lyrics we started to practise singing our song (Adriana and Olivia). We had to find a rhythm to sing our song to (Connor and Jacob).

We practised lots and then went to the hall (David). We performed our song to Dolphin class (Daisy). I felt excited (Lillie). I think some people could have felt scared because it was our first time performing to another class (Hannah).

I learned that we have 500 billion blood cells (Toby). I found out that blood is thicker than water (Eden). I have learned that it takes 45 seconds for blood to travel up and down (Ashley). White blood cells protect us from getting sick and poorly (Isabelle). I know without blood we’d be dead (Naomi). Platelets stop us bleeding and they can form a scab (Jonathan and James). Our blood is different shades of red (Tommy). I learnt that blood is a thick liquid and is not just water (Matilda). I know white blood cells gobble the germs (Daniel).

These are the lyrics to our song:

Blood is made up of tiny parts

With different jobs to do

Red blood cells carry the oxygen

They look like doughnuts too

White blood cells are protectors

They gobble up the germs

Platelets stop you bleeding

And they can form a scab!

Our blood is red but isn’t tomato soup or stew

We have red cells, white cells and platelets too!

Blood blood blood

Everybody has blood!

We have 500 billion blood cells

Without them we’d be dead

They wear out and need replacing

and they only last a few days

Our arteries carry blood

away from the heart

And then the veins carry it back

All the way to the start!

Our blood is red but isn’t tomato soup or stew

We have red cells, white cells and platelets too!

Blood blood blood

Everybody has blood!

Our amazing mysterious bodies

Contain a bucketful of blood

It travels around all day and night

bringing oxygen, chemicals and food

Our hearts are pretty powerful

They pump blood all around

Did you know it takes 45 seconds

to travel up and down?

Our blood is red but isn’t tomato soup or stew

We have red cells, white cells and platelets too!

Blood blood blood

Everybody has blood!
