CLIL: Science What can sport do for you?

So you want to be a swimmer?

Factfile Sport and the human body Sport is good for your body because: • your muscles and bones become strong. • your muscles become flexible. • your heart becomes strong and you have more stamina.* • you aren’t often ill.


hris swims for the UK national junior swimming team. He swims every day. At the moment he’s trying to improve his

stamina so he runs five kilometres before school every day. He also does judo every Wednesday after school because he wants to be flexible. He goes to the gym every day too and does weightlifting


because he wants strong muscles.



New words •  become •  body •  bone

•  muscle •  swimmer •  weightlifting

•  heart •  improve •  strong

> Translate these words into your own language.


•  gym •  team Glossary *stamina: physical or mental strength


Reading  eading tip: Predict from pictures R and titles


• Before you read, look at the pictures and the title. These can help you to predict what the text is about.

Writing tip: Check your tenses • Use the present simple (she plays) for habits, things that happen regularly and general truths.


Look at the pictures and the title. What do you think these texts are about? Tick the ideas. Then read and check. 1 going to the gym 2 football 3 cycling 4 the human body 5 swimming 6 food


• Use the present continuous (she’s playing) for things that are happening now, at the moment. • It’s important to use the right tense, so always check the tenses in your written work.

Guy’s Blog Hi! I’m Guy. I go to school in London. My school day starts at 7.15. I get up and have breakfast at 8 ‘clock. Mum, my sister and I leave the house at 8.30 and I walk to school. My first lesson starts at 9 a.m. All my lessons are 45 minutes. There are five lessons in the morning and there’s a short 15 minute break after the second lesson. Lunch is at one o’clock. I always have a packed lunch of sandwiches, crisps and fruit. We have P.E.(Physical Education) in the afternoon twice a week at school. We play football in winter and cricket in summer. I’m playing in the school football team this year. Mum picks us up from school at 3.15. When we get home, my sister and I play on the computer or watch TV. I always have some homework every day. I usually do it in the kitchen after dinner. Mum sometimes helps me. I go to karate once a week. I usually go to bed at about 9 o’clock.
