PSHE (45 minutes)

Please follow the link to Oak Academy.  Click on Lesson 3 - Time to Get Active.

In this lesson, you will explore the importance of exercise. The lesson will involve getting up on your feet and measuring your heart rate before and after exercising. (Have you got a stop-watch?) You will find out how much exercise you should do everyday - you might be in for a shock! To finish the lesson, you will be creating your own exercise timetable. 






Here's a new warm-up song to get your body, mouth and brain warmed up ready for singing. Can you manage to do the actions and sing the song at the same time?

There's also a copy of the lyrics for you to print out and sing a long.

Could you make up your own verse for the song? It could be about anything you like! 

Please share it with us on SeeSaw

Here's another song you know. Which part are you going to sing?

Gospel medley - Sing Up - YouTube

Now you're all warmed up I'd lie you to sing along with The Power in Me!

Don't forget the air guitar in the instrumental part.
