What is a typical Embed session like?

Embed activities are designed to reinforce and consolidate the grasp of topics that may have already been covered at school

 The following example uses the Key Stage 3 Science topic 

 

 

Skeletal and Muscular Systems

 

This requires pupils to know and understand:

 

 

Structure and functions of the human skeleton, to include support, protection, movement and making blood cells

 

Biomechanics – the interaction between skeleton and muscles, including the measurement of force exerted by different muscles

 

The function of muscles and examples of antagonistic muscles

 

 

 

The Skeleton Walk

 

 

 

 

This Embed session will revisit all of the content from the programme of study as shown above, with a focus on

 

Reinforcement of key concepts and vocabulary

 

Bringing the theory to life using farm livestock and wildlife found on the farm

 

 

An introductory session in the class barn will be followed by a farm walk, where a range of skeletal forms will be observed and discussed.  The worksheet can be completed during the walk, in the plenary or later at school, depending on your requirements.
