Team Kista Talk: Stress: Body and Mind

Team Kista Talk: Stress: Body and Mind

Are teenagers more stressed than people in other age groups? (Spoiler alert: the answer is probably yes!)

In this week's Team Kista Talk, Mr Östling Huhta discusses how the changes in your body - and in your brain - actually make it more difficult for you to handle stressful situations.

Super Hero Day

Super Hero Day

Students were encouraged to participate in skills, fitness and strength tests as part of a Super Hero Day at IES Kista.

Different activities were set up throughout the day for students to try and to practise the skills of some of the most famous superheroes. 

There was; 

The Hulk Challenge, which involved the Grip Test and Arm Wrestle,

The Captain Marvel Challenge where students practised catching and reaction skills,

The Black Panther Challenge for standing Long Jump and Press Ups / Planks. 

The Spiderman Challenge which saw students trying the Spider Hang and Spider Bars to do pull ups,

The Black Widow Challenge of Skipping and Hexagonal Jumps,

And the Thanos Staff and Student Challenge where the challenges included Bench Deadlift-Strength, Water Bottle walk-strength endurance and Water Bottle Squats-strength endurance.

Mr Small, who organized the project, said ''The aim of the day is to engage students to be aware of physical power through fitness and skill".
