Exercise

This KS1 PSHE quiz will help children to understand the importance of taking part in exercise and help them to understand the changes that will happen to the body when they exercise and why these changes are happening. It will also give them examples of ways to exercise on a regular basis either on their own or with their friends at school.

Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and should be promoted from an early age. It can benefit the mind and body in many different ways and can take many different forms from team activities to individual ones.

7.
How does your body feel when you exercise?
It feels colder
It stays the same
It feels warmer

Your body temperature increases when you exercise and this will make you feel warmer. You will also notice that you start to sweat. This is the body’s way of cooling you down so you don’t get too hot
8.
What happens to your heart when you exercise?
It beats slower and softer
It stays the same
It beats harder and faster
It changes colour
When you exercise, you can feel your heart beating harder and faster. This is because it needs to pump more oxygen-rich blood to the muscles
