  • understand the importance of eating well
  • understand the importance of being active

In the classroom

Display this calendar on your whiteboard or projector weekly to keep you and your pupils focused on healthy eating and physical activity. If you teach Reception, this ties in with the year in which pupils are weighed and measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme.

The calendar highlights many of the fun and easy-to-use curriculum-linked Our Healthy Year activities. There's a new idea for each week, plus links to other great resources.

After you click to reveal the joke or riddle of the week, save your changes so you can keep track of your progress.
