Animals, including humans

In the first lesson of our new topic, we started by recapping on the names of the 5 key food groups. We then had lots of discussion about why we needed a balanced diet and why these food groups are essential for our nutrition. We had a selection of food items which we sorted into the correct group as a team. The year 2’s then used the food pyramid to draw and label foods in each group. The year 3’s wrote down some brilliant answers as to why each food group is important for our health. The year 3’s also created pictograms to display how much of each food group they ate yesterday.

We have been learning about endoskeletons, exoskeletons and hydrostatic skeletons. We sorted the animals into these 3 groups as a team and then did it independently. The year 3s did some research on some additional animals and sorted them into the correct group.

This week we learnt all about our human skeletons. We began the lesson by drawing around someone in out team. We labelled the bones we already knew and then came back to add the new bones that we had learnt at the end of the lesson.

In Science this week, we have been learning about the importance of our muscles. We learnt about voluntary and involuntary muscles. We the constructed out own model of the human arm to explain what the tricep and bicep does when we straighten and bend our arm.
