Year 3 have just started a new science topic exploring the benefits of healthy eating. Many of the pupils are already aware of the importance of having a healthy diet. We started off our work by having a class discussion to share the knowledge that we already know.
We then introduced some new words to the pupils. These included vitamins, minerals and molars. We talked about the connection between some of these words, and how having a healthy diet and a healthy body is connected.
The pupils then labeled a diagram of the human body. We wanted Year 3 to be able to identify all of the knowledge that we know so far about our bodies, and then think about other body parts that we would like to learn about over the coming weeks.
You can catch up with some of the early thoughts on this subject in the audioboo below.
