Get Fit Fortnight 30th September – 11th October
The government’s aim is for all children to have at least 60 minutes physical activity every day. Lots of children play traditional sports such as football, but we would like our students to have the experience of different types of sports which could inspire them to join a club outside of school. In order to achieve this, the Healthy Schools Team arranged trained professionals to come and offer many different taster sessions over two weeks. These included:
- Bollywood dance
- Street dance
- Freddy Fit Keep Fit
- Break dance
- Kick boxing
- Box Fit
Trailblazers Fitness also came to school to put on a free family keep fit session which was well attended by parents and students. Get Fit Fortnight finished on Friday 11th October with a visit for the whole school from the amazing African dance and music group The Mighty Zulu Nation. Nearly everyone, including the staff, got up to join in the dancing and chanting. The Zulus then worked with Year 4 students practising Zulu dancing which the parents were invited to watch.
As the students loved Mr. Holder’s tchoukball sessions so much, we have decided to buy some tchoukball equipment so we can practise in PE lessons as well as training up a team to play other schools.
All the children were given contact details of clubs in the local area which offer the sports we tried during Get Fit Fortnight and some children have already signed up and are trying new sports out of school!
If you know anyone who would like to come into school to showcase their sport, please see Mr. Buck or Ms Reddish.
