Reptile Visit

We recently invited RDJ Reptiles to bring some animals into Year 3 so that we could continue our learning about skeletons and muscles. Jay spoke to us all about Savannah Monitors, Bearded Dragons, Chameleons, Boa Constrictors and Burmese Pythons. We had a chance to feel how snakes move their bodies and discussed how they use thousands of muscles to move themselves (humans only have about 600). After feeling their muscles and their spine, we then tried to draw what we thought a snake’s skeleton may look like, before we looked at pictures on the computer to compare our ideas.
