All about me!
Make an information card about yourself which includes your full length photograph, a self-portrait drawing and any distinguishing features. Use the photograph to make a labelled diagram of yourself labelling the different body parts. Which words do you know? Which parts are you less sure about? Challenge yourself to add more than ten labels to your diagram. There is a body outline in your learning pack if you would prefer to label that. It can be downloaded below too.
Comparing myself to others
Using photographs of your family and friends what similarities and differences can you find? Who do you look like the most? You could describe a photograph of a family member or friend and see if the people in your house can guess who it is. Can you guess when they have a turn at describing the pictures?
Health Centre Role Play
Can you make a health centre role play area? You could use tape measures and rulers to take measurements of different body parts such as arm length, leg length, head circumference, wrist circumference, etc. You could then add these measurements to your ‘All about me!’ card. You could measure the people in your house too.
Send any photographs to email@example.com and we will put them on the website for everyone to see.

Keep sending in your photographs and we will keep updating the progress of your plants.
