We bought our bikes into school today as we have been learning all bout exercise and being healthy. We had great fun but also thought about which muscles in our body we were working and how. We decided exercise makes our hearts work faster, makes us hot, makes us out of breath and makes our muscles ache. It must be good for us! We think cycling is great exercise as you can see from our photos.
When we came inside we had a look at some children’s helmets. We talked about how helmets help to keep our heads safe and how important they are. Miss Williams showed us what might happen to our heads if we don’t wear a helmet by holding Mr Egg up high and dropping him. He didn’t end up looking very healthy – in fact he looked egg-stremely sorry for himself!
We decided to make him an egg-helmet to protect him. We designed them based on the materials we had available. Tomorrow we are going to do our egg-speriments to see if our helmets work or not.
