Weekly Project: PSHE

Discuss the different routes you take when you walk to school. If you don't walk to school, how do you travel and why? Why is walking to school a good idea?

Some benefits of walking and physical exercise include:
It lowers the risk of illnesses
It strengthens the heart, bones and muscles
It keeps the brain active
It helps people to live longer

Find your heart and place your hand on your chest. See if you can feel your heartbeat. Another spot you can find it is on your wrist.
Can you count how many times your heart beats in 1 minute?

Next, do some exercises like jogging on the spot, spotty dogs and star jumps. Here's a video you could do:

How do you feel after the exercise? Your heart may be beating faster and you may be out of breath. 
Now count your heartbeat again!

We know we are doing physical exercise when our heartbeat rises. How much physical exercise should you do to stay fit and healthy? You should do 60 minutes of physical activity every day. This means anything that gets the heart beating faster than usual.

Why is physical exercise important to remain healthy?

Do we need to be outside to have exercise? 
Do we need to use equipment to raise our heartbeat?

Sort the pictures of hobbies and activities into physical exercise and those
that would not accelerate the heartbeat. 

Think about your perfect weekend and evaluate whether there is a good range of activities. 
Is there enough physical exercise over your weekend?
Do you think you get enough exercise daily? 
How can you get more?
