Moderate intensity activities

Activities of 'moderate intensity' are those that cause a noticeable increase in breathing rate, although conversations can be maintained. This may mean different activity for different students.

For example, for some students a steady jog would be of moderate intensity whereas for others, a brisk walk would be of moderate intensity. Some students may not be able to sustain moderate activity and may need to rest regularly.

The duration of moderate-intensity activity can vary however sessions should be at least 10 minutes (other than in special circumstances where this is beyond a student's capability).
