In Science, we have been learning about the human skeleton. We’ve learnt that there are 206 bones in our bodies- 27 in each hand! Kingfishers had fun trying to match the name of a bone to a body part- they worked them out after a few helpful hints. Well done to our eager volunteer skeletons- they really were happy to help out.  It was so interesting to discuss all the important roles our skeleton has!
