Evidence and reflection
We suggest that a simple daily record sheet is developed such as the one below. The task for an appropriate group of students could be to record their physical activity:
If you had any exercise at these times, please write in what you did.
- after getting up
- getting to school
- first lesson
- second lesson
- dinner time
- third lesson
- getting home
- in the evening
This could be completed retrospectively for one week.
Analyse your results. You will probably be able to see patterns in the type, amount and timing of activities. Perhaps there will be differences between boys and girls, or between children with gardens at home and those without. Do you judge that the amount of exercise is sufficient for healthy physical growth at the age of your sample of pupils?
