This week reception have been looking the book ‘Funnybones’ by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. We really loved the story and have enjoyed engaging in lots of different activities about bones. We looked at x-ray images of different animal skeletons and talked about why we need bones in our bodies. We even had a go at building and labelling our own human skeleton! When putting our bones together we sang the song ‘Dem bones’ song which helped us to remember the names of the bones in our body. It goes like this:
“The foot bone is connected to the leg bone
The leg bone is connected to the knee bone
The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone
The thigh bone is connected to the hip bone”
Maybe you could ask us to sing it at home!
