Discussion in 'Early Years' started by crazydaisy65, Feb 7, 2011.

  1. recognising the importance of keeping healthy and thise things that contribute towards these

    We do circle time on keeping healthy or when we are having snack we talk about how healthy the fruit, water and milk make our bodies. General chat, really
    As Msz suggests, we also do a normal PE session and feel how fast our hearts beat when we run around and how pink our cheesks get and sometimes our heads gets sweaty...

  6. We have just covered these targets this term. We did them through the Superheroes theme.
    We talked about what a superhero needs to do to stay fit and healthy - eg brushing teeth, getting plenty of sleep.
    We also thought what a balanced superhero lunch would contain. We did not really cover that foods were 'bad' we thought about making a meal balanced by having a meat, potato and veg.
    We made fruit salads and smoothies.
    We set up a role play superhero training centre/ gym area and did lots of observations and asked children questions such as 'gosh, you look hot, why do you think that is?'
    We made up an action song to the hokey cokey that went 'You have to do some stretches, eat some fruit, drink some water and get plenty of sleep. You do the superhero and you grow really strong, that's what it's all about .... ooooo the superhero ... ooo the superhero .... ooooo the superhero ... right arm, left arm now you're strong'!!!!
    This time has definitely been the most succesful time I feel have covered these objectives.
    I hope this helps.
