Year 5 - Health Experiment

In year 5, we conducted an experiment to discover the healthiest way to travel to school. We measured our resting heart rate, then went outside and acted out how we each travel to school - some of us walked around the playground, some of us rode bikes and scooters and some of us sat still as if we were travelling in a car. We discovered that riding a scooter to school is the best way to increase your heart rate. We also learnt that children need to be active for at least 60 minutes a day to make sure that their hearts stay healthy and strong.

"Teachers have high expectations of their pupils and are very aware of the specific learning needs of the different groups of pupils within their class."
