Year 4 get 'funky' in Science
This term year 4 have been learning about animals, including humans. They have explored the human skeleton, finding out that the femur is the longest bone in the body (it makes up a third of our height!), animals can have a skeleton on the outside of their body (exo-skeleton) and that muscles work in pairs!
On Thursday, 4R discovered what actually happens to our body when we exercise. After listening to Sarah Outen, a British athlete and adventurer, describing the effects of exercise on the body, they took their resting pulse and breathing rate. Then, to increase both of the previous and to witness the effects of exercise, the class underwent a stringent workout to Bruno Mars ft. Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk (watch the video on Vimeo ).
This is what the class had to say about exercises effect on their body:
You know when you have been working hard because you go red and sweaty, also your heart beats faster.
Sometimes after we exercise and then rest, our muscles can ache.
We breathe fast after exercise because your body is trying to get more oxygen.
When we exercise my heart beats faster because my body and muscles need more oxygen.
