Living and Learning – physical and mental health

Friday 19 May 2023

This week’s Living and Learning statement is ‘I know that being physically active is mentally and physically healthy’.

In KS1 we have been discussing the importance of having 60 minutes of exercise per day.

We keep active in school every day through WUSU, PE and play during break and lunch times.

One child in 2C said ‘I walk to school every morning. This is part of my exercise.’

We also talked about the importance of rest and that we need both exercise and rest to keep our bodies and minds healthy.

We calculated how long we spend being physically active each day and how we can make small changes to stay active for longer.
