Things I’m learning about…

My physical needs and emotional needs.

 

Things I can think about…

  • What do we need to keep healthy?
  • What changes happen inside our body when we exercise?
  • Why do you think we need to drink water?
  • What do we mean by a ‘balanced’ diet?
  • Why is sleep important to our body?
