As part of the Science curriculum, Year 1 have been studying the human skeleton.

The girls learnt that the main functions of the skeleton are to support, protect and help us move. They impressed the staff by learning the names of many bones and were even able to recall some of the Latin terminology.

Junior School’s life size model of a skeleton was a useful study aid and she even acquired a new name – Ruby!

Year 1 were then challenged to work in groups to cut, position and attach paper bones to create a life size model of a skeleton. They worked hard as a team to think carefully and apply their prior knowledge. They had such fun moving the skeletons around once they were completed!

There was a lot of enthusiasm on show later, learning the words and actions to the Dem Bones song.
