Week 5 - Keeping fit & healthy and life cycles of animals (18th May - 22nd May)

This week we are carrying on from last week and will begin by looking at healthy eating and food groups.


Activity 1

Operation Ouch - Fuelling the Body | Science for Kids

Operation Ouch - Energy Machine | Science for Kids

Activity 2

This week as we are looking at healthy living and keeping fit. There are two activities within this next activity for you to do.

Challenge 1:

The first is to keep a food diary for a few days.

Track what you eat and then decide for each meal or snack the health level. Try and identify which food groups predominantly make up what you eat. This is tricky as meals will be a mix of more than one group.

I have included example layout sheets but I suggest you design your own on paper or using j2office. You could make a presentation to go on the website at the end of the week. 


Challenge 2:


Make a keep fit challenge that lasts about 5 minutes to share with the everyone. You could draw diagrams or design a keep fit challenge card that I can laminate. How you present your keep fit challenge is up to you. 

I am hoping to persuade the fitness fanatics in the team (Mrs Kilgore and Mrs McCarthy) to  join in and try some of your challenges at home; when we are in school, we will try and use some of your routines.

Remember: social distancing activities are vital so we must be able to do each challenge on our own.

If we are in school, consider what we could use like the track, playground lines etc. 


Have fun designing your challenges!



Activity 3


We are going to look at the differences between mammals, amphibians, birds and insects. Take a look at the PowerPoint pdf below.

Task 1:

Read the descriptions and then sort the pictures correctly. 

Task 2:

Add more to each set. 

Activity 4 


Watch the BBC clip and then look at the power points attached below. Read through the life cycles of the mammal, amphibian, insect and bird. Use the information to make your own version of a life cycle for each one. I have attached 'an example' layout on the last slide but you can be as creative and colourful as you wish.
