Getting Those Muscles Moving!

In Year 3, we’ve been exploring the human body. This week, we learned about muscles and tendons before seeing them in action. We participated in different activities that worked each of the muscles around our bodies, from biceps to quadriceps.

Following that, we set up for and investigated how different body parts work. We explored four different investigation questions:
• Do people with longer legs run faster?
• Can shorter people do a forward roll faster?
• Do people with smaller feet balance better?
• Can people with longer arms throw further?

This half term Year 3 have been thinking about the differences between animals including humans. What makes us different? Are there different classifications?

The children enjoyed listening to this song relating to animal classification. Can you think of example of each type of vertebrate?
