 W/c 25th January 2021


Look at the list of different types of exercise from the end of the last lesson and answer the following question. What is the one thing they all have in common that needs to be done at the beginning and end of any exercise session?

Answer – Warming Up and Cooling Down. This is especially important if you are exercising to improve your health. After all, if you end up getting injured from not warming up properly then you are not improving your health!

Task 1

Go to the remote learning page of the DPA website and click on the link for the first video under W/c 25th January in the PE section. Watch and perform the warm up in the video. Next watch and perform the cool down in the second video. Can you spot any differences between warming up and cooling down?

Plenary (End of Lesson Task)

I want you to have a go at creating your own warm up. Write it down and try to keep the warm up to about 5 minutes in length. We will share the warm ups you create in the next lesson.
