In the classroom

Using a favourite soft toy to help you, run through the Our Healthy Year presentation to make sure pupils have a basic understanding of eating well and moving more, and to tell them about the other Our Healthy Year activities. Follow up with the Our Healthy Day story presentation.

Includes handy notes below the slides help you deliver the presentations and encourage your class to get involved.

For more ideas see the Our Healthy Year: Reception toolkit.

These presentations are the perfect way to start your healthy year!
