Putting some muscle into it - Elm
Elm have been learning about the function of muscles. We started by writing questions we wanted to know about our muscles and explored the answers through fact cards. We discovered voluntary, and involuntary muscles and which of our organs are a mix of different tissues. We then demonstrated how muscles contract and pull our bones to help move our bodies.
After this we predicted which muscles we would use when we ran, spent our whole break running and then felt which of our muscles ached to see if our prediction came true!
