Learning about our bodies

04 May 2017

In Reception the children are learning all about their bodies and what they need to do in order to keep healthy.

Part of the curriculum in the Early Years is for the children to understand the importance of good health and making healthy choices. Through our topic ‘Amazing Us!’ The children have been discovering what our different body parts do and how we fit together. Last week in a special collaboration challenge, the children worked in teams to build their own life sized skeletons in just 20 minutes!

The children had to use their super cutting skills to cut out all of the different bones and then try to fit them all together - without any help! It was like one giant jigsaw puzzle, I was amazed by the speed at which the children worked. They used their fantastic collaboration skills to work together, dividing up the jobs and encouraging each other as the countdown timer went down. They used their knowledge of the body to put the bones in the correct order. This was super tricky as there were so many different types of bones and the leg bones looked quite similar to the arm bones! The children used the skeleton song to help them put the pieces together. I heard lots of them singing “The thigh bones connected to the hip bone!”

After the 20 minutes were us all of the teams got together to see which team was the winner. The children received points for good cutting and sticking, excellent team work and getting the bones in the correct order. It was a close call but in the end the skeleton team were the winners! The children are really enjoying this topic and are certainly very curious about their bodies!
