Staying Healthy in Year 2

contributed by Ms Genevieve Darmanin, Year 2.1

As part of our science lessons, this term in Year 2, we have been talking about and exploring the importance of being healthy. The students learned about the importance of exercise, keeping ourselves clean and eating a balance diet. A number of science experiments were conducted through which our young scientists explored and investigated how germs spread, what type of drinks harm our teeth and what happens to food when we touch it with dirty hands. The boys also learned about the Healthy Plate and how to plan their lunch or a meal by referring to the healthy plate.  This was subsequently linked to our art and crafts lesson during which the boys made funny sandwich faces using only healthy food.
