Head over to the Year 4 Virtual Library and watch Week 1 Lesson 2 video.  

 

What do you think of the initial opening of the story? We have only shared a snippet with you today to give you an insight into Oliver’s life and background!  

From the video a key thing we have learnt is that he comes from a family of explorers! That is going to be our focus today. 

 

What is an explorer? Would you ever want to go exploring? If so, where?  

 

Look below at the PDF for instructions on today's challenge!

 

PE - get the whole household involved! 

What happens to your body when you exercise?

 

This question is what you need to explore this afternoon! 

 

So today we would like you to get active with five different forms of exercise and measure the way your body responds!

 

At the end of each set of exercises - measure how many times your heart beats for 1 minute and write it into a table! Record down anything else you noticed happening such as:

- Sweat forming (what parts of the body)

- Arms/legs/face becoming redder 

- any aching muscles 

You may choose to draw a diagram of your body and annotate onto it! 

 

It is important that you take time for your body to return to normal after each 'round' so that it is a fair test! Whilst you are waiting for your body to return to normal, record down what happened to your body!
