    The new KS1-2 science curriculum has an increased focus on anatomy, particularly the systems of the human body. In this lesson, pupils are introduced to human anatomy for the very first time. Pupils sing songs, play games, label one of their classmates and compare human anatomy with animal anatomy as they become familiar with the major body parts. This lesson may be preceded by Animals, including humans: Pets and other animals and Animals, including humans: What do animals eat? and followed by Animals, including humans: Five senses.

    Pupils will learn:

    • How to identify, name and label basic parts of the human body
