Science and Maths

Blood is pumped around the heart through vessels called arteries and veins. Arteries carry blood away from the heart to the rest of the body and the veins return the blood to the heart! Heart rate/beat can be measured, when an artery crosses a bone, press a finger against the skin to feel the blood pumping. Keep trying as it can be tricky to find! This is called your pulse, your pulse rate should be about 70 to 80 beats a minute.

Now, the title of your challenge is;

How does exercise affect your pulse rate?

Find your pulse. Does it change after doing the exercises you've been given this week? Design and carry out an experiment to see how your pulse rate changes after exercise. Is there a graph you may have used last week that you could use again to show your results?

Dance/ Drama/PE

 

 

Can you record yourself doing a fitness routine that we could all follow, remember as you deliver your activity just must also talk us through it which I definitely find hard! No longer than two minutes please!!

DT and Art

Being healthy isn't just about exercise, it's also about what you eat and a balanced diet. At the moment we aren't able to go to restaurants for a treat so we would like you to create your own restaurant. We would like you to design a menu in the style of a one page booklet. It will need a front cover with a design displaying the name of your restaurant on the front, and anything else relevant such as a picture of the building or the food you serve. Then inside we would like you to write a menu  offering starter,  main course, pudding and drinks. Your choices MUST be healthy and balanced, using the different food groups that we have talked about in science. Also you must note any warnings at the bottom for example; may contain nuts.

You may even be able to make some of what is on your menu!!

Additional Challenges

Play outdoor Bingo

If you are unable to print this off, make a list in your book to tick off.

Fun ideas to help your children stay healthy

 

Day 1

Challenge

Personal Challenge 1 - How many skips can you complete in 2 minutes?
Equipment - Skipping Rope, Stopwatch

Make it harder by... skipping on one leg!

 

Day 2

Skill

BALL BLAST CHALLENGE

Equipment needed:

2 tennis balls or equivalent size          

Skipping rope or line

A4 sheet of paper folded in half or sheet of newspaper

How to play the game:

1. Place one ball on the folded sheet of paper at least 2m in front of the line. This is the target ball.

2. Stand behind the line and roll or throw the ball at the target ball.

3. Can you hit the target 5 times in a row (bronze), 10 times (silver), 20 times in a row (gold). Or count how many times in a row you hit the target ball, then try to beat your score.

Further challenges:

TOO EASY?

 Move the target ball further away.

Increase the target numbers for bronze, silver and gold.

Use a beanbag or screwed up paper which doesn’t roll.

TOO DIFFICULT?

 Use larger balls or bring the target nearer.

 

Day 3

Outdoor/indoor activity

Obstacle Course

Obstacle courses make great physical games for children. Build a course using some of these ideas in any order:

Lay down a makeshift ladder and have the children step through each rung.

Allow only

jumping/crawling/crab walking from one area of the course to another.

Make a Balance Beam - masking tape is all you really need, make a line on the ground or lay down a skipping rope or put down a piece of wood.

Perform various exercises such as 20 sit-ups or push-ups.

Give your child 2 sheets of newspaper and allow each step to be taken only on a piece of newspaper. This requires the child to reach back and grab the previous step’s sheet of newspaper – tricky!

Create a slalom– they must run zig-zag between obstacles.

  • Jump over various objects.
  • Throw balls to knock down objects.
  • Throw balls into buckets or laundry baskets
  • Use water squirters to hit targets.
  • Make them fill up a cup of water, run a distance to another container, pour the water in the container, and repeat this until they fill up the container to a certain height.

Variations – Make it a competition and time them to see how long it takes them to go through the whole course.

 

Day 4

Get creative!

Balloon Volleyball

What you need: 1 inflated balloon, a racket, bat or even a hairbrush or wooden spoon.

Can you keep the balloon in the air by using a piece of equipment? A racket, bat or even a hairbrush or wooden spoon.

You can count the number of times you tap the balloon or time yourself.

Play a Game

1. Everyone must be seated. Together, try to see how many times you can volley the balloon to each other.

OR

2. Play 1v1 or 2v2. Create a net, you could use a skipping rope or chairs. Play against each other over the net. If the balloon hits the floor on your side, the other team win a point. If you hit the balloon and it doesn’t go over the net, the other team get a point. Each side is allowed up to three touches on their own side of the net before the balloon must go over.
