why do children move so much in their sleep?

We currently have our 8 year old son sleeping on a mattress on the floor next to our bed as his bedroom is being repainted.
He seems to move around SO MUCH in his sleep and from what I can gather from other parents is that it’s quite common/normal. But why? Is it because he’s growing or because his metabolism is so different from an adults?
