Getting in Shape: Middle Stages

This booklet, aimed at primary level, contains eighteen activities linked to health and diet, incorporating many cross curricular links. The activities look at various aspects of healthy eating and lifestyle including: identification and classification of fruit and vegetables, plant lifecycles, food groups, a balanced diet and a healthy mind and body. Children carry out surveys, present and interpret data, write emails, make observational drawings and play games such as food bingo.

Included with the booklet is a learning and teaching ideas grid to assist in the planning of an integrated, structured, cross-curricular, programme of work. The Curriculum Planner provides an overview of how the programme fits into all the relevant subject areas.
