My Body

This topic is similar to the Moving and Growing topic, but is aimed at children aged six and seven. It covers what children of these ages should know about the human skeleton, including the number of bones which make up the skeleton and the functions of various parts of the skeleton. It covers the skull and the fact that it protects the brain. It gives information about the ribcage and the number of ribs the body has. It introduces children to the more technical names for the bones of the spine and the pelvis and children begin to learn about joints.
