Living and Learning – I know that being physically active is healthy mentally and physically.

Tuesday 21 May 2024

Over the last couple of weeks, Year 3 have been discussing how to stay healthy mentally and physically.

Physical activity helps to:

We discussed our day to day lives to work out if we are being active enough. These are some opportunities we have to be active; walking to and from school, Wake Up Shake Up, PE, swimming, clubs, playtimes.

Help at home: Have a look at Uma’s day. How could she be more active? Have a look at your own day.  How can you be more active?

Physical activity helps to keep our minds healthy too. Being active releases chemicals in your brain that make you feel good – boosting your self-esteem and helping you concentrate as well as sleep well and feel better.
