Y3 Investigating Skeleton Growth

Pupils investigate skeletal growth and age. They measure the height of children from the age of 4 years to 11 years. Pupils plot and place these results into a graph before drawing any conclusions.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - identify that humans and some animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement
  • NaG - pupils should be introduced to the main body parts associated with the skeleton and muscles
  • WS - pupils should set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; making systematic and careful observations and, where appropriate, taking accurate measurements using standard units; gather, record, classify and presenting data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
