Y6 Exercise, Breathing and Pulse Rates

Pupils investigate what happens to their pulse rates and heart rates when they complete a series of exercises. They record their results and place them into a graph. They also try to explain why these body changes occur.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function
  • NaG - pupils should build on their learning from years 3 and 4 about the main body parts and internal organs
  • WS - recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, and bar and line graphs
