In class we checked our resting pulse rate. We found our pulse and counted how many beats we felt in 20 seconds and then multiplied this by 3 to get our bpm. We did this 3 times and then found the average to gain a more accurate result. Next, we checked our pulse rate, but this time after 2 minutes exercise. We again found the average. We then compared our results. We found that exercise causes an increase in pulse rate (heart rate). Exercising causes our muscles to contract more often and require more energy. As more glucose and oxygen is needed, blood flow to the muscles increases.
We visited Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices Concert. We enjoyed singing along with 8000 other children and also famous people like Tony Hadley and The Shires.
We visited Touchstones to take part in a workshop as part of out WW1 topic. The children used artefacts from WW1 to enhance their learning experience.
Reverend Gill paid us a visit to answer questions to help with our unit of work ‘Life is a Journey’. In this unit the children are required to identify and interview a ‘Super Christian’. Reverend Gill came dressed appropriately as a superhero and it was a great opportunity for the children to find out more about her life.
The children were all given their own individual login details to access an excellent revision website that the school subscribes to. They were given the opportunity in their computing lesson to login to the website and have a look at the resources available. The children have been encouraged to use it to help them with any areas of the curriculum that they need extra support. The address for the website is www.satsbootcamp.co.uk
We took part in the Crucial Crew workshops at Rochdale AFC to gain awareness of personal safety issues. These included internet safety, safety around railway lines and basic first aid training.
