Year 3 bone up on skeletons at the Booth Museum

On Tuesday, 21st February, Year 3 visited the Booth Museum of Natural History to take part in a fascinating Skeleton Workshop. This was a wonderful chance for the children to embed and extend their learning, with lots of hands-on activities for them to find out more about the bones of different animals and their functions.

Having talked about how bones in the skull varied depending on whether the animal was a predator or prey, the children got to handle real bones, then weigh and sketch them, before building their own skeletons.
