This week we asked the question, how do animals stay healthy? We were challenged to design an outdoor gym which would encourage us to exercise. We discussed how we could use the playground space to exercise our muscles and out heart and designed our own exercises. Once the rain had stopped, we headed outside to test our outdoor gym, and thought about how each exercise affected our heart rate, our muscles and our breathing. The children used the space very creatively and came up with some very challenging exercises!
