Task 2: READING ALOUD (10 mks)
Read the following story aloud as instructed by the teacher

There lived in village a certain a poor old woman who had collected a mess of beans and was going to cook them. So, she made a fire on her hearth and in order to make it burn better she put in a handful of straw. When the beans began to bubble in the pot, one of them fell out and lay, never noticed near her was a straw which was already there. Soon a red-hot coal jumped out of the fire and joined the pair.

The straw began first and said, "dear friends how did you come here?" The coal answered, "I jumped out of the fire by great good luck. I should have been burnt to ashes." The bean said, "I too have come out of it with a whole skin. I should have been cooked like my comrades." "Luckily I managed to slip through her fingers." The straw asked, "What had we better do now?" Said the coal, "I think we should hide," The bean responded,"that as we have been lucky to escape with our lives,we will go together into foreign lands." The proposal pleased the other two and they started on their travels.

Soon they came to a little brook and as there was no bridge the straw was struck with a good idea and said, "I will lay myself across so that you can go over me as if I were a bridge." So, the straw stretched itself from one bank to the other and the coal quickly trotted up to goover the newly made bridge. When he reached at the middle and heard the water rushing past beneath her, she stopped and could not go farther. So, the straw began to get burnt and broke in two pieces and fell in the brook. The coal slipped down hissing as she touched the water. The bean who had prudently remained behind on the bank went on laughing so excessively that she burst and now would she certainly have been undone forever, if a tailor on his travels had not by good luck stopped to rest himself by the brook. He took out needle and thread and stitched her together again. The bean thanked h im, but as he had sewn her up with black stitches, all the beans since then have a black seam.

Read the stories below and answer the questions that follow

ABC of First Aid

  1. - Airs
  2. - Breathing
  3.  - Circulation

Checking for Breathing.

  • If they do not answer, shout out something to them, but is still unresponsive, check whether the casualty is breathing by putting your face close to their face and looking at the rise and fall of the chest.

Performing A Head Tilt.

  • Incase the casualty is not breathing: the first responder needs to find out the reason by performing the head-tilt chin-lift to observe airways.

Steps in Performing Head-tilt Chin-lift

  1. Kneel next to the casualty's head.
  2. Place one hand on the patient's forehead and tilt the head gently backward.
  3. Place two fingers under the bony part of their chin and lift the chin vertically upwards.

  5. Iodine
  6. Alcohol swabs or antiseptic wipes.
  7. Sterile gauze
  8. Pressure pad
  9. Cotton wool or cotton balls
  10. Tweezers
  11. Scissors

Use of items in the first aid kit.

  1. Adhesive strip dressing- it is used for minor cuts and skin injuries.

Nutrients - a substance or ingredient that promotes growth, provides energy and maintains life.

Balanced diet - a meal with all the required nutrients in proportions.

Food Intake During Physical Activity

  • When growing the body needs a lot of energy.
  • Children need a plate that is one-third ratio division. This means that one-third has proteins, the other carbohydrates and the last third vegetables and fruits.
  • One needs to eat a meal rich in complex or whole starch before an exercise.
  • Eating should be done at least 2hrs before you go for sports. This will allow the food to be digested and release energy the body needs.

Warm Up And Cool Down Activities

  • Warm up: activities that are done to prepare the muscles for vigorous activities.

Importance of Warm Ups

  1. They prepare the body for the game of the day
  2. Muscles become warm
  3. The blood begins to warm up.
  4. The joints become more flexible, they can move easily.
  5. Helps to prevent injuries.
  6. The brain becomes prepared for the activities.

Cool down activities are activities that are slow and easy.

Importance of Cool Down Activities

  1. The heart beat goes back to normal gradually.
  2. The muscles stretch easily without being injured.
  3. Helps to take blood back to the heart and the rest of the body gradually.

The Human Heart.

08 human heart

  • The human heart is located between the lungs.
  • It is protected by the ribs in the rib cage. It helps to pump blodd thoughout the body.
  • The heart pumps blood to the lungs to get oxygen and remove carbon dioxide.
  • This pumping gives the heartbeat. the normal heart beat of an adult is 60-100 beats per minute/

Functions of The Heart

  1. Pumping oxygenated blood to the other body parts.
  2. Pumping hormones and other vita substances to different parts of the body.
  3. Receiving deoxygenated blood and carrying metabolic waste products from the body and pumping it to the lungs for oxygenation.
  4. Maintaining blood pressure.

What happens to the body during exercise?

  • The heart beats faster.
  • The person sweats a lot
  • The person gets thirsty.
  • The body tempeerature increases.
  • The person breathes harder.
  • Blood flow inside the body increases to the brain and muscles.
  • The bones becomes stronger.
  • One gets tired and hence gets difficult to talk.

Cardiorespiratory Endurance.

  • The system is composed of the lungs, the heart, the blood and the blood vessels.
  • Cardiorespiratory endurance is the ability of the heart and lungs to work together when you are doing an exercise for an extended period of time. We can develop the endurance by:
    • Running
    • Brisk Walking
    • Jogging
    • Cycling
    • Swimming
    • Dancing.

Human Muscles

Muscular Strength

  • Muscular strength refers to the maximum force produced by a muscle or group of muscles in a single muscular contraction.
  • Muscular strength can be achieved by using weights.

We need strong muscles because:

  1. They reduce the chances of getting injuries while doing your daily activities.
  2. They reduce body fat and increase lean(containing little or no fat) muscles in the body.
  3. Helps to maintain correct posture.
  4. Helps in carrying out the day-to day activities.
  5. Helps in maintaining strong bones that have high bone density.

Muscular contraction: changes in the length of muscle

Muscle Endurance

  • Refers to the ability of a muscle group to perform a repeated action without getting tired.

Importance of muscular endurance.

  • Helps increase our stamina for performing daily chores for example cleaning the classroom and gardening.
  • Helps us in preventing injuries that would be caused by overuse of our active muscles throughout the day.
  • Increasing your muscular endurance will make everyday chores and tasks easier. Training muscular endurance will increase your stamina- you'll have more energy to go from your job to playing with your kids, for example.
  • You will find that performing repititive physical activity such as gardening, raking leaves and washing your car- will become less fatiguing too. Emphasizing the importance of endurance in your training will also limit injuries sustained from physical exertion and from the overuse of active muscles throughout the day.
  • Helps us improve our posture by strengthening our major muscles that are necessary for activities such as sitting in class for long hours.
  • Helps avoid lower back pain by strengthening the endurance of the abdominal and lower back muscles.

Muscular And Joint Flexibility.

  • Flexibility refers to the capacity of a joint or muscle to move through its full range of motion.

The benefits of taking part flexibility.
