Living and Learning: Physical Health

Friday 26 May 2023

In L&L, we learned about how physical activity can help our physical health as well as our mental health.

It is recommended that a child gets at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day to help reduce the chance of developing diseases and to help maintain healthy bones and muscles.

60 minutes  of physical activity could be walking, running, or anything that makes your heart beat faster.

We also talked about how physical activity releases chemicals into our brains to make us feel good. We also learnt that when we exercise, we have more energy which then means we can concentrate more and means we are more energised and alert!

Help at home: Try out a new sport or type of physical activity over the half term!
