This term we are looking at Healthy Me for PSHE.
The children had to think about why we exercise and why it is important to our bodies. The children discussed clubs they participate in outside of school. We had swimming, dancing and trampoline clubs. The children recognised that the clubs were healthy for them.
After this, the children participated in an experiment. They had to stand up and talk about how their bodies feel as they were standing and what would happen to their bodies when they exercise and if anything would change. They had to jump in the air for a minute and discuss the effects on their bodies. The children were able to recognise that they were breathing heavily and their hearts were beating faster.
Next, the children continued their experiment by using the sports equipment and timers in the outdoor provision. They compared the activities and the effects they had on their bodies during each activity.
