Explain what energy is and where it comes from. Use the PPT for guidance.
Show the video on slide 2 about energy and explain why we need energy.
Pairs discussion: Ask pupils how they feel when…
They have lots of energy
They don’t have much energy
Explain to the class what can affect our energy levels such as food, sleep, and activity.
Card sort activity – print and cut around the exercise cards. Pupils must divide the cards into two categories, those that need lots of energy to perform them and those which need smaller amounts of energy.
Active energy – Ask pupils to perform the activities on slide 7. As a whole class pupil must rank the activities in order of which ones use more energy.
Super energy - Explain to children that different foods can give us different amounts of energy. Print out the super energy worksheet and ask pupils to draw and colour in the battery packs with foods that can give them energy e,g bread, banana, apple, rice, chicken.
Extension - children can stick the energy battery packs to their back and dance to music. When the music is loud, they must be energetic and when quiet they must move slower.
Super stretch – Lead pupils for stretching exercises and explain that this helps bring their energy levels back down to normal and helps them feel relaxed. Explain that stretching can help wake us up in the morning and give us energy or help us cool down after exercise.
Reflection time: Ask pupils to think about something they have learnt today and what they will do differently this week.
