Hi everyone, it’s Mrs Viner here checking how you are getting on in this strange and unusual time!
I am sure that you are making the most of being at home, but I also wanted to remind you that it is important to keep your mind and body happy and active!
This can be achieved in a variety of ways. 🍴🏃😴
Firstly, by eating a healthy balanced diet and drinking plenty of water. Food is really important as it fuels our bodies, so we have lots of energy to run and jump around!
Secondly, you need to do some physical exercise. When you exercise your heart rate increases and your body releases chemicals called endorphins – which make you feel happy and motivated.
Lastly, sleep is really important as it gives our bodies rest and allows it to prepare for the next day.
Did you know, that every living thing sleeps from the smallest insect to the largest whale. Some animals spend as much as 20 hours a day sleeping!! 😴
I would love if you would send me your ideas of how you are keeping yourselves feeling happy and keeping active. Here are some ideas to get you started.
- Can you create a healthy plate of food? You could draw the different food or create a menu. If you are a budding chef maybe you could prepare the food for someone in your house. (Always check with an adult before hand).
- What exercises have you been doing? Rhys and I have started the Couch to 5K. Could you create your own exercise video like Joe Wicks? Tell me about the places you have explored for your daily exercise?
- Could you find out how much sleep other animals get? Who sleeps the most in your house? For any of our top mathematicians, could you record how much sleep you get every night over a week? Then put it into a graph or/and find the average amount of sleep you get?
So, over to you…please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care and stay safe 😊
