Teddy painting foot prints on paper.

Key Stage 1
Human Body

Is it human or animal? Draw around your child for them to paint and label different body arts. Test physical skills by balancing on one leg, race against the clock and play ball games. Hands-On Education firmly believe learning should be engaging and fun. We understand all children are individual and learn in different ways. We have enjoyed putting these hands-on activities together and finding a range of ideas for our children to access learning.

Within this topic you will find:

  • 6 activity plans, all of which clearly explain how to prepare and carry out each activity.
  • 6 activity sheets to support your child in recording their investigations.
  • 1 videos, providing examples of the artwork of Vincent van Gogh to help inspire your child’s own creativity.

This topic meets aspects within the National Curriculum in England in the following subjects: Art, Maths, Physical Education and Science.
