5 Blue-Joy of movement Week 1


We were very lucky to have Harry and Johnny from Sky Blues to come and work with us today as part of the Joy of Movement program. This will happen ever Friday this half term.

We discussed what physical activity is and the different types there are with Harry.

What is a vigorous activity?Can you give examples?

What is a moderate activity? List some examples.

We did a pulse investigation where we checked our pulse before and after moderate and vigorous activity. What did you notice about your pulse?

Harry set us a challenge to record our physical activity and screen time every day for one week. This should begin today. The sheet below if what you will fill in when in school so please note down your results.

We explored different ways of moving around outside followed by incorporating this in team games such as tig and hand ball.

How much physical activity should you be doing each day? Remember the more you do the better for you!

Next week we will be discussing:

Why is physical activity good for the body and mind?

    A moderate activity is when you don’t use your body as much as a vigorous activity.
    We did a pulse investigation where we checked our pulse before and after moderate and vigorous activity. What did you notice about your pulse?
    Our pulses got faster because we were exercising, so our muscles need extra oxygen. This need means that your heart starts pumping faster, which makes your pulse go faster.

    How much physical activity should you be doing each day? Remember the more you do the better for you!
    Each day you should at least do 60 minutes = 1 hour of a vigorous activity.

  5. A vigorous activity is when you are moving your body constantly .
    Rugby , handball and basketball are all vigorous activities
    A moderate activity is where you move but not much.
    This includes golf and cricket .
    You should be doing at least an hour and if not more.

    Friday – 2 hours ( break , lunch and round robin)
    Saturday – 1 hour ( skipping ,walking and riding bike )
    Sunday – 1 hour ( skipping ,walking and riding bike)

  6. 1) What I noticed was that if i did a
    moderate activity my pulse went not that fast but when I did a vigorous activity my pulse want way more faster.
    2) A moderate activity is a sport that you don’t need that much energy to play for example:
    • walking
    • jogging
    • lunges
    3) A vigorous activity is when you do an activity that includes a lot more energy to complete for example:
    • running
    • sprinting
    • lunges
    4)Y You should be doing 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
    5) Physical activity is good for your mind because your body will pump more blood to your heart and it is really good for you heath and it will make you stronger

  7. 1. A vigorous activity is a activity that involves a lot of running for example football or basketball.
    2. A moderate activity is a activity that involves resting for a bit for example walking.
    3. I noticed after my vigorous activity it was beating very fast and I got 240 a minute.
    4. You should be doing at lease 60 minutes which is a hour.
    5. Human activity is good for the body and mind by your heart is pumping blood to your other body parts an d it makes you strong.

    Today I done 15 minutes of exercise and at lunch I done a hour then I done 45 minutes with Coventry football club so all of that equals 2 hours of exercise so I done 1 hour of screen time.
    * 2 hours of exercise.
    * 1 hour of screen time.

  8. A sport that is vigorous is football because the attacker runs around to get the ball and also basketball and the position center causes the attack to go and run and jump to score. A moderate is hockey because you run slowly so you can keep the ball. You should do it for 60 minutes. Physical activity is when the body moves and relaxes the muscles and mind.
