How your skeleton works (includes diagram)

Skeletons are dead – everyone knows that. Well, think again! These skeletons are alive and kicking. In fact, there’s one inside you right now! This explanation text for year 3 and P4, linked to the topics animals including humans and Biodiversity and interdependence, includes a diagram of a skeleton with the labels; teeth, skull, humerus, vertebra, pelvis, femur, hand, wrist, skull, foot and ankle. It explains how we move, what our skeletons are for and what bones are made of.

This downloadable non-fiction reading pack includes:

  • An A3 reading spread for you to print.
  • Reading comprehension question and answer sheets, differentiated using our magnifying glasses key (on the bottom right). One magnifying glass indicates easier and two means harder.
