Image of Year 3 asked: Why do we have muscles?

We have been learning all about a healthy lifestyle, food and exercise.  We have studied the 3 main functions of our skeleton, to protect, support and help movement. We now know that we have 3 different types of muscle, they move in different ways and have different function. Some muscles move voluntarily and others involuntarily. Our biggest muscle is found in our bottom. Our most important muscle is our heart ❤️. Muscles need to be warmed up before exercise to avoid damaging them. Muscles are joined to our bones with tendons. Without them we could not move our body. Amazing!
We learnt the scientific names of our muscles and matched them to their functions.
 

Year 3 wonder why we need muscles…..
