Session H Keeping fit

Humans (and other animals) need exercise to be fit & healthy. Talk about why exercise is important for our muscles, bones & heart (which is also a muscle). Find out how exercise affects our bodies. Discuss children’s favourite ways of exercising.




Remind children that we need a balanced diet to stay healthy. Now introduce the importance of exercise by talking about/using a suitable book to illustrate some of the different parts and functions of our bodies and why we need to keep fit.


Being fit means you have stamina and can walk or run longer distances, your body is flexible and can move easily and your muscles are strong. Show children the video clips at     - the importance of fitness  - exercise and sport children can do to keep fit



The parts of our body that are involved in exercise are:


  • Bones - there are 206 bones in our bodies, exercise helps them grow strong - feel some of them.
  • Muscles are joined to bones and make them move. If they are not used they become smaller and won’t work well – like trying to pick up something heavy. The heart is a muscle too. If you are 7 years old your heart beats about 90 times a minute.
  • Veins and arteries take your blood (carrying oxygen from the air and taken in through our lungs, and goodness from your food) to every part of your body (arteries) & bringing waste gases back to the lungs to breathe them out. Look at veins on the inside of your arms to see them under the skin.


Tell children that they will have the opportunity to look at all these parts of our bodies in more detail in their science lessons in later on.


Exercise also helps us relax and we can have fun with our family and friends. Ask children if they feel good when they have done some exercise.




Discuss words active and inactive. Talk about and collect ideas about how children like to exercise.

Ask - What is your favourite form of exercise in school and out of school?  What games do you know that are good for making your heart beat more and your lungs work harder?  Children illustrate their favourite ways of keeping fit in and out of school. If time on the back they could draw different exercise ideas that other children might like to try.
