It is important to include a variety of different activity in everyday living, supporting physical, social and mental wellbeing.
Meeting the physical activity recommendations is a vital component of living a healthy, active lifestyle as it supports physical, social and mental wellbeing.
Being active goes beyond just participating in sport and it is important that pupils can recognise the different ways people can be active in everyday living. Pupils will also need to identify that the activity recommendations differ for people of different ages.
Nutritional requirements also differ when someone is very active and pupils should understand how they differ and what nutrients are crucial in meeting the changing requirements.
