Year 3 have just started a new science topic looking at the human skeleton. We have already looked at the role of healthy eating and how food can have an impact upon our growth. The next stage in the scientific learning is to look at the human skeleton.
Our early observations have involved learning how to identify the many different bones that make up the human body. Each class member has carefully cut out the various bones that were randomly assembled on a piece of paper. We then put the skeleton back together again by making sure that all the bones were connected correctly. The pupils then labelled each body part.
We then introduced a true size model of a skeleton. Our work in Year 3 will learn about how we can examine the bone structure to see if this is a male or female, as well as learning about how important all the bones in our body are and what role they play to keep us healthy.
