Physical development

Part of the 'Health and Self-Care' Early Learning Goal which is part of Physical Development is to understand about ways to keep our bodies healthy so we focussed upon this during this half term as part of our 'Food' topic. The children listened to the story 'The Highway Rat' and talked about the effect on the rat's body as he kept stealing all the travellers food. The children also engaged in a cut and stick activitry where they had to design their own healthy lunchbox and explain their reasons for their choices. The children also played the game 'Greedy Gorilla' where they had to collect healthy foods on their boards and feed unhealthy food to the Gorilla. We danced to songs on boogie beebies and talked about the effects of exercise on our bodies.
