Human Body

Year 3 pupils have been learning about the human body. We have learned about the skeleton and muscles and why they are important. We learned about the heart, its function in the body and conducted an investigation into what effects heart rate. As part of our science work they also got the chance to investigate a sheep’s heart so that they could identify some of the features we had been learning about.

  

We have been learning about healthy foods and what makes a healthy meal. We tasted and evaluated soups. We made our own soups and wrote some recipes. We read the story of stone soup and wrote our own version of this classic tale.
