Hello students and families welcome to Freshwater PE!
It is important that every student stays active. On this web page I will be posting various activities to help you and your family stay healthy and fit.
Below is some helpful information about how to keep yourself and family healthy and physically fit:
Children and adolescents (6-17 years) should do 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day, including daily aerobic – and activities that strengthen bones (like running or jumping) – 3 days each week, and that build muscles (like climbing or doing push-ups) – 3 days each week.
These three types of physical activity should be included each week for children and adolescents:
1. Aerobic Activity
Most of your child’s daily 60 minutes of physical activity should be aerobic activities, like walking, running, or anything that makes their hearts beat faster. In addition, encourage them to do aerobic activities at least 3 days a week that make them breathe fast and their hearts pound.
Include muscle-strengthening activities, such as climbing or doing push-ups, at least 3 days per week as part of your child’s daily 60 minutes or more.
Include bone-strengthening activities, such as jumping or running, at least 3 days per week as part of your child’s daily 60 minutes or more.
