Our Lungs!

The boys and girls in Nursery 2 have been learning about the human body.  This week we looked at lungs and breathing.

During our gym time, we used an experiment that helped demonstrate the different ways we use our lungs. We split into teams, racing against each other to blow a pom pom across the finish line – this was fun and our friends cheered us on! We then ran three times between the walls of the gym and afterwards blew the pom pom again to see the effects of exercise on our breathing.

We found that running made us need to breathe harder and we needed a rest afterwards!
