On 28th of January, Stuart from the Muscle Dystrophy charity came in to talk to us all about Muscular Dystrophy. Muscles are found all over the body and enable us to talk, smile, frown, eat or breathe. Muscles are connected by tendons that pull on our muscles and make them expand and contract. We can expand the size of our muscles by doing certain sports and physical movements like running or gymnastics. All of us have genes and this is what makes our hair blonde or our eyes green. Sometimes the genes in our muscles don’t form properly and this is called muscle dystrophy.
Our school is taking part in “go orange”. This is where we have to raise money for the muscle dystrophy charity by wearing something orange or wearing sunglasses on Friday 1st February.
