Exercise by Blake F

Exercise makes your heart send lots of blood .

Your heart is made out of four chambers  top left, top right , bottom left and bottom right

First your blood  goes to your lungs  to get air then it goes around your body.

When you exercise after your heart pumping still for a few more seconds.

Mrs Lewis talked to us about how to find our heart beat. I found mine in my wrist. Then we started  to skip. After we counted our heart beat min was over 100.

Short term effect heavy breathing and sweating.





Heart rate by Jay

On Wednesday the 18th of January 2017 year4 were doing exercise with Mrs Lewis. We were doing about the pulse of the heart. We were finding the best places to find are pulse. We found out the pulse was in our neck and our wrist. We could feel our heart beating in our wrist and neck. Then Mrs Lewis asked a question. The question was what is our heart made of. I said muscles and it was correct! Then Mrs Lewis got out some skipping ropes. She said that we are going to be skipping for 30 seconds. At first I was quite bad but I got better. Mr Tibbitt was really good at skipping. He was skipping really fast.

Then after 30 seconds was over we were all panting out loud. Then we felt our heart rate. Mine was pumping like mad. Then we counted how many times are heart was beating for one minute. My heart rate was 80 beats per minute. I found my answer by putting two fingers against my neck. Some of the other people in my class put two fingers against their wrist. I found it easier to put it against my neck because I could feel my heart rate against my neck. Then Mrs Lewis said that if we doubled are number what would we get. She put us into partners and I was with Zac. He said his number was 24. When we doubled the number it was 48. Then we doubled my number which was 80. When we doubled the number it was 160. Then we dropped our skipping ropes and gathered around Mrs Lewis. She asked us what our doubled number was and if they were past 100.  My number was over 100 so I was fine. Then Mrs Lewis said that we were going to skip again. Mrs Lewis said that the people who got over 100 don’t work as hard as you did last time.

I found it easier to do crisscross skipping. I got tangled a few times but I was on a roll. Then Mrs Lewis said (after 30 seconds) to feel your heart rate. Mine was 85 this time. We got back into the same partners and Zac said his was 64 which I thought was much better than last time. When I doubled Zac’s number we got 128. Then we doubled my number and it came up with 170. Then we went back to gather around Mrs Lewis. When Mrs Lewis asked who got over 100 everyone put their hands up and Mrs Lewis was impressed!

Then Mrs Lewis talked about short and long term affects. Short term affects could be sweat, panting and heart rate increasing. Long term affects could give you muscles. Then Mrs Lewis said that we were going to be skipping for one last time. I was skipping really fast.

Skipping with Mrs Lewis by Ffion

On Wednesday 18th January 2017. Year4 did some skipping out in the school play ground. We did it with MrsLewis for our topic the human body we did it for our heart beat. Year 4 had to skip for 30 seconds it was very hard then we stopped and checked our heart beat on our neck and our wrist. On our neck we had to draw a big smilly face to our soft bit of  our neck and on our wrist we put our 2 fingers on our other hand and we had to put it by our thum and counted our heart rate.

We counted them and then found a partner and doubled our answer with our maths patner I was with Eva and I got 30 but when I doubled it and my answer became 60. Then we skipped for 1 minute and our heart beat should of been over 100 mine was it was 101 but when I doubled in and it became 202 after I felt very hot and tierd and sweaty. If I did it for more than a few days I would of got more fit and healthy and I would get better at skipping. If I did it for shorter I would not get better and I would be very tired I would not get used to it and I would not get better at skipping. I enjoyed skipping with Mrs Lewis.





Measuring our heart rate By Blake C

On Wednesday 18th January 2017 Mrs Lewis taught year4 about how fast our heart goes when we skip. We had to measure our heart so we skipped for two minutes and then counted our heart beat for 30 seconds and mine was 63 so we doubled it so mine was 126. Then Mrs Lewis showed us how to find our pulse. You had to touch your chin and go to the neck on squishy bit or where your watch strap goes on your wrist if you push there you can feel your pulse. There are things called short term effects like sweating and heavy breathing and then there is long term effects like losing weight and growing muscles,and it gets easier.



Looking at our heart rate by William

On Wednesday the 18 of January. We looked at our pulse. We had skipping ropes as well it was tiring then we counted our pulse. Then we doubled it with a math partner. We ran when we was skipping. We skipped  for 2 minutes. There was 2 places were your pulse is your wrist and your squishy bit of your neck. We had 2 ropes a red one for the sort ones and a blue one for the taller ones. There are two things called long term effects and short term effects. If you have a long term effect that means you do stuff like that lots of times. If you get short term effect that means you do stuff like that not very much. When you feel your heart beat it will increases and when you rest it goes down. I fell on the floor and I felt like I was going to explode. I ran and I skipped and all of the cold air went in my mouth.



Exercise by Younis

On Wednesday the 18th of January year 4 were doing exercise because we were learning about heart rate so we did some skipping we were skipping for two minutes and it felt like a very long time. Then we were trying to find were our pulse and our teacher Mrs Lewis said that our pulse was in our wrist but you can’t put you thumb on your wrist because it is a fake pulse. We put both of our middle fingers on our wrist on our wrist  we checked our pulse for thirty seconds and we tried to feel how many beats I had twenty four beats and I doubled it so I had 58 beats.

Then we tried to skip for two minutes again which was very tiring then we had to check our beats again mine was 58 then we had to double it and it was 116 which is more than I got last time so I improved and I was happy with that. Then miss told us to do it again and I was freezing cold so I tried to warm myself up so I skipped really fast and I was still cold. Then she asked us some questions miss said what happens if we do it for a long term effect of time and we said we will get healthy and we will get fit. Then she said if we do this for a long time then we would sweat and I don’t want to be extremely sweaty when it is the Easter holidays. She said if we do this for a long time the our heart rate would be higher and we will grow muscles but  if you do it for a short term effects you will breathe heavily and you will get hot and your heart rate will get higher.

Then we did it another time for one minute and Mr Tibbitt was really good at skipping and he was really fast. So we did it for one minute and I skipped really fast then we checked our heart rate again mine was 56 so I doubled I 112. This time we checked our heart rate a different way we drew a smiley and then we went on the squidgy bit of our neck and we checked it.


Skipping exercise by Faris

Our teacher Mrs Lewis told us we were going to skip. If you exercise skip, run or doing fast exercise your pulse in your neck and your wrist beats fast.  When your pulse beats really fast you are doing exercise.  The reason we do exercise is to keep fit. Then we had to skip.  The first round I skipped my pulse beat was 56 then you had to double it so then it was 132.

The teacher said to go really slow then my pulse was under 100. Exercise keeps you fit. My class and me had to skip non stop for 1 minute. When you skip slow your pulse slows down. When your pulse beats its called a heart rate. Short term affects are being  tired, hot, sweaty, heart rate increases.  Long term affects are getting better at skipping , fitter, healthier, faster at skipping, stronger.

After a round  of skipping we had to put our hand on our wrist or neck to count our pulse  beats per minute. In our skipping lesson we had to find a math partner to double the number. It was really fun.  First when we got down stairs in the playground before we done our exercise  we had to find our pulse. Even the teachers joined in for a little while. Then we had to fold and knot the skipping ropes.


Heart rate by Zac

On Wednesday 18th January the whole class was doing skipping with Mrs Lewis she told us we were doing heart rates and first we were doing a practise and then for real and doing each one for 30 seconds. All of us got a skipping rope on the real one we counted our pulse its where the wrist is and under your ear we did that for 30 seconds and doubled it for how many beats per minute it does go slower over a longer period of time. I was under a hundred when doubled and then I got above hundred then after that one it was over 200! And Mr Tibbett was joining in the skipping and he was really good. There are long term effects and short term effects of exercising. The long term effects if you exercise a long time you would get muscles, sweat and fitness, and getting used to it. Short term effects is you will get lots of sweat, heavy breathing and your heart beats fast.




Skipping with Mrs Lewis by Dan

On Wednesday 18 January 2017 me and my class went outside to do some skipping and we talked about how our heart rate got faster and faster and then slower and slower. It got faster because we were moving quickly and when we stopped our hearts got slower  because we were relaxing. We could feel our hearts beating because it was loud we talked about what we could feel happening to our hearts and what was happening to our bodies  some people were sweating and breathing heavily. Short term affects are something that happens to you like sweating, breathing heavily, heart beating faster and if you exercise for a long time it is called a long term affect which is something that happens to like getting stronger, getting fitter, getting healthier.



Skipping lesson by Jacquelyn

Did you know that skipping is exercise. If you do exercise then good, if you don’t  to bad. On 19.1.2017 my whole class did a skipping lesson and we have to skip for two minutes and when we finish we got paired up in two and I was parner up with Blake. Before that we countered how many heartbeat beat in a row. After that we had to double our beats and in the first place I had 66 heartbeats and I doubled and I had 112 heartbeats.

Did you know you can feel your heartbeats in two ways. The first way is you can feel it on your left wrist and the other one is on your neck. Some of the short term effects of exercising are breathing hard, sweating and your arms start to ache and long term effects are you could lose weight.
