Food and our bodies


What the Children Do
Our first unit in Year 3 was about the human body. We learnt so many interesting facts about how our bodies function. 
We started by learning about what makes us healthy. We looked at the 'healthy eating plate' and decided to make our own healthy packed lunches. We realised that only eating fruit or vegetables does not make us healthy.
After this, we learnt about the skeleton. We looked at x-rays of bones and even had to re-assemble a skeleton.
Following on from this lesson, we learnt about the muscles in our body. We were taught that our muscles contract and release. 
We have really enjoyed our first half term of science and are looking forward to learning about light in the next half term!
