Y3 Muscles Move Body Parts

Pupils learn that the main job of the muscles is to move bones and therefore body parts. Muscles do this by contracting and relaxing and as a result pulling bones up and down and backwards and forwards.

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, finding out how different parts of the body have special functions
