Bones in Chestnut and thank you Kelly!
Chestnut Class had a wonderful session finding out about bones and the human skeleton with the support of Kelly Thornber. They learnt about various bones and their functions, what a living bone looks like, what happens when things go wrong by looking at X-Rays! They also puzzled about why babies are born with more bones than adults. The children were then challenged to put their thinking and problem solving skills to the test… not to mention their teamwork skills of listening to each others point of view… to make a model of a hinge joint complete with muscles.
A big thank you to Kelly, for again bring the learning alive. She has also secured the school a grant for a science experiment that we will be conducting soon! More news on that later in the year.
