Today we are going to think about all the ways we can keep ourselves healthy. What does healthy mean, discuss?


Watch this clip about how humans stay healthy: We normally think of just food and exercise when we think about being healthy, but it is more than that. We need to keep our bodies and minds healthy. So, eating and exercising is very important but so is hygiene, mindfulness and sleep. Looking after ourselves is so important – open the ‘Looking Me Ourselves’ PowerPoint and discuss each area: Exercise, food, mind, hygiene, what we wear, sleep and rest.

Activity: Children to complete the ‘Looking After You’ worksheet. They need to choose three of the ways to keep healthy and write a sentence and draw a picture to match.

Extension: Healthy eating word search.
