As mentioned above we learned a lot about our body and the different parts. What we realised along the way is that we play a big part in our bodies and our well-being. We can do heaps to look after ourselves. Some of the ideas the children came up with were that to stay healthy and happy we should eat healthy food, do plenty of exercise, drink lots of water, get rest and have fun. For our taking action children created their own healthy eating plans, exercise plans or persuasive posters about what they thought was important. The class was buzzing with excitement and they were all busy creating.
Creating fitness plans based on exercises we learned in class
The children had to choose which exercises they would do each day and how many reps they would do of each. They had to write the numbers in. This was a really good exercise for thinking about how much a number actually is because some people decided they would do 2,000 sit-ups and after trying 5 realised their plan may not be realistic!
Creating healthy eating plans and adding foods we are going to try to eat more of
Creating persuasive posters about ways to get fit and what to eat
|"Get Fit. Run as fast as you can!" "Eat Healthy Food!"|
|"Do Flips to Stay Fit!"|
And then some of us started to put our plans into action and we got on to doing our exercises. This was really helpful in seeing if we had been realistic about our goals.
We also have begun sharing these plans in videos on Seesaw. Help us stick to our plans at home! Let's do exercise together and eat lots of healthy food!
