Suggested HWB Experiences & Outcomes

  • I make full use and value the opportunities I am given to improve and manage my learning and in turn, I can help to encourage learning and confidence in others. HWB 1-11a
  • I am developing my understanding of the human body and can use this knowledge to improve and maintain my wellbeing and health. HWB 1-15a

Suggested Learning Intentions

  • To understand why children should be physically active for 60 minutes each day.
  • To recognise ways they can become more active on a daily basis.

Suggested Success Criteria (I can...)

  • Describe some of the health benefits linked with being physically active for 60minutes per day. HWB 1-15a
  • Identify different ways I can be active each day to meet the 60 minute target. HWB 1-11a
  • Create a personal activity plan to improve my level of physical activity. HWB 1-11a

Suggested Learning Experiences

  • Estimate how much time they spend on screen activity eg, watching TV; surfing internet, playing consoles etc.
  • Discuss ways they could spend less time on screen based activities and more time doing physical activity, giving examples of how they could achieve this.
  • Record an active diary for a day/week and review with a friend to see how they can improve their levels of physical activity – present to rest of class.
  • Discuss what they could be doing at home instead of watching TV - ‘If I was not watching TV I could..............instead.’
  • Mindmap why it is good for the body to be active every day eg, maintain a healthy weight, social development, develop co-ordination and skills, healthy heart and lungs, healthy, strong muscles.
  • List the types of physical activity they did yesterday. Estimate how much time in total they spent doing these activities.
  • Discuss the importance of being physically active for at least 60minutes per day - investigate how they might split the 60 minutes physical exercise target each day.
  • Consider the different types of physical activity which could help make up the 60 minute per day, including less obvious forms of activity eg, walking the dog, gardening, playing at the swingpark.
  • Collaborative Learning – in groups, give each a specific topic to consider: Activity at school; Activity before school; Activity after school; Activity with the family - create a class poster titled ‘Different ways we can be active’ using the ideas generated from the group sessions.
  • Identify some potential barriers they might come across which could make achieving the target difficult and come up with solutions that would help them to overcome these barriers and achieve the target.
  • Create a personal activity plan – a way of setting simple, achievable goals over a short period of time.
  • Create a collage showing their understanding of the differences between sedentary and active behaviours.
  • Virtual classroom activities created by HWB team at Alexander Peden
