Rec/KS1 Fitness Unit 2 Session 2

Learning Intentions

  1. Build on last week’s score for fitness progression
  2. Use the words ‘work’ and ‘rest’ to describe interval training
  3. Say one way (some in further depth) that rest is important after exercising

Success Criteria

  1. Recall my score from last week and aim to improve
  2. I can use the words work and rest in a sentence to describe today’s exercise
  3. I can say one (or more) way rest is important after exercise

Starter Activity

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes— Sung in the traditional way, take pupils through the range of actions and body parts. As pupils get used to the song, repeat and speed up the pace. Ensure the pupils really exaggerate the movements so they stretch high and low moving their limbs in and out.

Fitness Progression Activity

  • Each week before the main part of the lesson you will give the pupils 30, 45 or 60 seconds (depending on the age of pupils) to complete a max effort number of down ups.
  • After their first session, record the pupils score to look for improvement over the 6 weeks. Do not expect to see improvement every session but it should be more than possible to improve by 2/3 reps over the 6 weeks.  This will be a combination of increased fitness and understanding how hard they can push themselves.
  • You may wish to pair pupils up to count each other reps.

Interval Training

Complete the following interval training with 30 seconds of activity and 20 seconds of rest.

  1. Floor Thrusters (either version or mixture)
  2. Plank object move
  3. Upright row with hoop (or similar)
  4. Back Support

Repeat in order, 4 times, 30 seconds activity 20 seconds rest.

Easier: Plank hold

Cool Down

Pass the invisible ball 

Easier: The teacher throws in turn to each pupil an invisible ball. The pupil must catch and throw it back.

Challenge: Number the children and they must pass in order starting with 1 and the next person calling their number.  Pupils throw amongst themselves calling who will remove the ball.  Have more than one ‘ball’ on the go at the same time.

Extension: Must sit down once they have caught the ball, then once they have caught the ball from sitting, lie down until all the class are laid down to end the lesson.

Teaching Points

Interval training is a type of training that involves periods of high-intensity exercise interspersed with rest periods. The high-intensity periods are typically at or close to anaerobic exercise, while the recovery periods involve activity of lower intensity.

Resting after exercise is as important as exercising itself.  When we exercise it puts a strain on our muscle, bones and nerves. When we rest we rebuild these parts of our body and become even stronger and fitter!

Key Questions

  1. What is the name of the type of training where you work for a set time and rest?
  2. Can you explain (or say one way) why rest helps us become stronger and fitter?
  3. Did you beat last week’s score? Discuss.
