There are also some excellent videos on BBC Bitesize . In particular for this week these videos would be good for your child to watch;

Help your child to read through the PowerPoint- My Wonderful Body (you do need to click on on each page several times for the information to appear and the sound symbol).
Activity- Label the Human Body activity (see files below)
Extension: For our older Infant children or those who are interested, I have also included a more complex Skeleton PowerPoint and there is an additional activity- Skeleton extension (see files).
*There is also a word search- Human Body word search.
Activity 2: Healthy Food
Help your child to look at the file- Let's eat a Healthy Balanced Diet. Talk about the different food groups. You may wish to look at the foodeeze food group cards and cut these out to make a healthy balanced plate.
Activity: Challenge your child to plan a healthy lunch or dinner, ensuring they select a food from each food group. Your child may wish to draw their healthy meal on a paper plate or circle template. Older children may like to type up the details of their healthy lunch/ dinner. They could then help to make their healthy meal.

Activity 3: Inside my Body
Help your child to look at the Organs PowerPoint.

Can they draw, position and label some of the main organs in the body e.g. brain, heart, lungs, Stomach. You may want to print out the organs cards (see files below) and help your child to cut them out and stick them on rather than drawing.
Extension: Older children could be encouraged to match the pictures of organs to their descriptions (see files- Organ Card Sort).
