Our topic question this term is ‘Does a Healthy Body Create a Healthy Mind?’ This topic is a mental wellbeing driver with links to PHSCE, Science and Art. We will start the topic exploring how physical fitness can impact our mood and how we relax. We will then look at some techniques we have used during ‘Children’s mental health week’ which support us in having positive mental health. We will identify foods which are good for us and design our own healthy snacks. Finally we will explore how artists have used art to interpret feeling and emotion. We will look at techniques to explore mood and look at the artist Frida Kahlo and will then create our own piece of artwork following her style.
In Science this term, Year 6 are learning how to keep their bodies healthy. They will learn all about nutrition, the importance of exercise, their hearts and more. They will investigate how water and nutrients are transported in the circulatory system and recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on how their bodies function.
