PSHE - Activity 1 - Body Bingo

Our body needs five things, every day, to keep it healthy:

  1. Food
  2. Water
  3. Oxygen (in the air we breathe)
  4. Exercise
  5. Sleep and rest

Play the Body Bingo game to create a healthy person.

If you don't have a printer, just draw the Body Bingo boards (page 2) and use a dice - give each number one of the 5 healthy things, e.g. 1 = Food, 2 = Water etc. And 6 = A Healthy Person. You have to roll a 6 to start! Use coins for counters!

P.E. Challenges - Have a go at one of these each day, they can be done in any order!
