We have kick-started our topic with a fun filled day full of exercises. We have taken a run around the school grounds (in preparation for our sports relief challenge), played team games in the hall, taken part in aerobics (and calmed ourselves down) and stretched our bodies out with yoga. We have also taken part in a time trial and recorded our scores. Using a sand timer we took on three ‘one minute challenges’: we had to see how many laps we could do of our outdoor classroom, how many jumps we could do with two feet together and how many jumps we could do backwards and forwards over a hurdle. We will test ourselves again at the end of the topic to see if all the exercise we have been doing has helped our bodies become fitter, stronger and faster. We have talked about the importance of exercise, the changes that happen to our bodies when we exercise and we have started to talk about healthy food choices. During this topic, we will be learning more about the impact physical exercise has on our bodies, what we can do to keep our minds and bodies healthy and the importance of good oral hygiene.
