These free downloadable lesson plans and worksheets are intended as a practical resource for KS1 and KS2 teachers to support teaching and learning about healthy lifestyles. They are in line with the KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum for England and Wales. Learning objectives have been grouped for ease of reference.
The resources were developed in collaboration with a qualified teacher and were reviewed by a team of teachers, scientists and nutritionists. Both lesson plans and worksheets are based on World Cancer Research Fund UK's Recommendations for Cancer Prevention, and are reviewed every three years. The KS1 lesson plans do not make any direct reference to cancer, but some of the KS2 lesson plans refer to the link between healthy living and cancer prevention. This teaching is intended to be optional and at the teacher's discretion.
