Rio Olympics Workshop

On Tuesday 19th July pupils in Key Stage 2 took part in a Rio Olympic workshop run by ‘Kidz Fit’. The sessions were really fun and interactive and also a little hot!! Pupils tested their ability to move to music, hoola-hoop and demonstrate their coordination skills. They also learnt about the history of the Olympics, the Paralympics games, why exercise is good for you and about nutrition and food groups. It was so lovely to see them all involved and having a great time. We hope they get to watch some olympic events over the summer holidays as well as staying active themselves.
