The Year 5 children have started on a 6 week programme with Southend United Football Club. Every Tuesday afternoon two members of the Southend United Football team come into school to run a 90 minute session with the children. The session includes 45 minutes of classroom based workshops covering body, nutrition, the importance of exercise and information about food groups, in line with Government's eatwell plate. This is followed by a 45 minutes practical session made up of football, handball and dodgeball. They children have been really enjoying the sessions so far.
