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.
