Talking About Our Bodies!


This week the children have been really keen to learn about their bodies and how they work! We have spoken a lot about all of the different things they can do to take care of their bodies, such as exercising, eating healthy food and having good hygiene! They also really enjoyed talking about our different body parts and organs, learning about what they do.

After soaking in all of this new-found information the children had a lot of fun drawing around each other and pinpointing where their different body parts are. Here at Leigh’s talking about having a healthy body and a ‘healthy me’ is a huge part of the way we teach. We do this in so many ways, from sticky kids, to healthy foods (and always offering choices), making sure they understand what is healthy and why. You could easily support and continue this at home by doing different exercises and discussing how they make the heart beat faster. Talk about your different body parts and point them out together. You could even draw around each other and label up the body parts too!

Lots of love as always!
