Fourth class have been invited to take part in a Children’s Art Competition as a part of the Festival of Russian Culture (11th – 18th February 2018). The competition is based on
The Goldfish, a story by the famous Russian writer Alexander Pushkin.
The story helped to inspire the students in fourth class to design and create their artwork.

We have been learning all about the heart in fourth class. Here are some interesting facts about the heart.
Did you know?
The heart pumps blood to all parts of the body.
The blood brings oxygen to the muscles.
Heart rate increases with exercise so that more of the oxygen carried in the blood can reach the muscles.
The fitter you are, the quicker your heart rate returns to normal.
An adult’s heart rate is around 70 beats per minute, and a child’s is a bit higher.
A mouse’s is about 500 beats per minute, and an elephant’s is about 25 beats per minute!
Our hearts are pumping at a regular rate. This pumping can be felt by placing fingers across the pulse point at the wrist or the neck, and the rate can be counted.
Your heart is about the same size as your fist, and weighs about the same amount as a lemon.
Your heart is located in your chest, near your lungs, and to the left of the hard bone in the middle of your chest (the breastbone).
Your heart is an organ made of muscle.
The heart is an important organ in the body. It helps deliver oxygen and nutrients that are in the blood to all the other organs in the body.
