Skeletons and Muscles

This week Ruby class have been exploring the purpose of a skeleton. We found out that you need a skeleton to provide support, protect your organs and to help you move. Muscles help you to move, digest food and breathe.

We made our own skeletons using cotton buds and gave them all names including Bony and Bob!

Nature Sculptures

Ruby class were looking at the work of artists such as Andrew Goldsworthy, Raku Inoue and Peter Shilling as inspiration to create our own nature sculptures.

These sculptures are designed to be recycled and returned back to nature. Didn’t the children do a great job?
