Term 4 - Healthy Bodies

What does it mean to be healthy? This question is answered as students learn about the body, both inside and out. The children construct a model of a body including heart, lungs, stomach and brain. The food we eat, its origins (plants and animals) and purpose are investigated in detail, including the concept of the food wheel. Students will be involved in incursions, which promote healthy lifestyle choices.

Focus Questions:

  • What does it mean to be healthy?

  • Who are the people that help us keep healthy and safe?

  • What is inside our body?

  • What is on the outside of our body?

  • What changes happen as we grow older?

  • What are the five senses and how do we use them?

  • What is a healthy meal?
