In the unit ‘Organisms 2’, the Year 8 students have been learning about organ systems within the human body. The students enjoyed learning about the organs of the digestive system, as well as the structure and mechanisms of the respiratory system. They also learnt about the effect of factors such as exercise, asthma and smoking on the health of the respiratory system which resulted in a lot of discussion. Year 8 students were then inspired to produce leaflets and posters to highlight the dangers of smoking.
