Wellbeing Keynote

In reading groups and when you have some finishing off time over the last couple of weeks of term, we would like you to work on your Wellbeing Keynote. You started this at the beginning of the term. This Keynote will reflect what you have learnt over our Integrated unit: Wellbeing.

Some ideas for slides might be:

  • A slide for each of the body systems from our rotations: Muscular System, Digestive System, Skeletal System & Nervous System. Reflect on the activities you participated in and any facts you learnt from each session.
  • A slide each for the four healthy living rotations you participated in: Mental Health, Sleep, Nutrition & Physical Activity. Reflect on the activities you participated in and describe why each of these areas of health are important to our wellbeing.
  • Research the answers to some of the questions you had at the beginning of the unit which you haven’t found out the answers to yet, eg. Why do we blink? Why do we get sick? etc.
  • Anything else you have discovered this term that you find interesting or would like to share with others.
