We've had a busy week finding out about Mission X and the life of astronauts!
By Friday we had walked a mile and started work on understanding a healthy diet and lifestyle.
We were all surprised to find out that our reaction times were quicker after we had performed star jumps; and all managed to find our pulse to track fitness progress!
Temple All-Stars are ecstatic after completing the entire list of Mission X challenges!!
We have all thoroughly enjoyed improving our fitness and learning more about staying healthy, especially the food challenges and the hydration station. We even got to try real astronaut food!
It has also improved our team work and communication skills.
We have enjoyed the project so much; instead of stopping we are going to continue by coming up with our own challenges instead!!!
We have already built rockets, written space poetry and made animations.
Has anybody at other schools got any good ideas for new challenges?
We have also involved a local community football team, Abraham Moss Warriors who have been incorporating some of the fitness challenges into their weekly training sessions.
Thank you everyone at Mission X .
It has been Fantastic.Well done everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While doing this mission we improved our strength and co-ordination. We accomplished this by doing the crab crawl and bear walk. We all enjoyed doing both moves and got our photos taken. Afterwards we had ackey limbs that still hurt slightly. For warm up we did some 12m races. And then did 1 bear crawl, rested then repeated twice(we did the same with the crab crawl).
We had to drink lots of water inbetween.
This week we have been busy looking at x-rays as well as a skeleton to look at bones .
We also made our own models of bones ,firstly using paper to represent weak bones with lack of calcium and vitamin D, then we used card to show how bones got stronger after a good diet.
Finally we used soil and gravel to fill the inside of the bone to show how muscle helps the leg become stronger.
On each model we placed text books to see how many books each model would hold.
We didn't think they would hold very many ,probably 2 or 3 books but we were wrong !!
Although the model made of paper only held 1 book the model with soil and gravel held 38 books!!! Amazing!!!
We also made posters about what we have learnt about bones that we have displayed at school.
After that we started our final mission Taste in Space.
