Y3 Muscles and Moving

Pupils investigate the muscles of the human body and have to identify which muscles are working when they carry out a number of common, everyday tasks and activities e.g. walking. Pupils learn the names of common muscles and the fact that all muscles pull and work in pairs when moving body parts.

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 ask relevant questions and use different types of scientific enquiries to answer them
