A Key Stage 2 role play lesson on the science of health and diet Matthew Tosh introduces a Key Stage 2 lesson using role play. The lesson is based around a fictional TV news story, which encourages pupils to think about the science linking health and diet.
Alison Clough and Claire Caulfield from St Benet?s Roman Catholic Primary School in County Durham team teach the lesson to year five pupils. The pupils watch the TV news report in which a proposed ban on the consumption by under 16s of certain foods – like burgers, chips, fizzy drinks and most types of pizza ? is announced. Challenged with creating their own news report pupils make notes on what they have seen in the video and plan and prepare scripts for their own reports. After rehearsing pupils video their news reports which are screened to the rest of the class for feedback.
