Health, Fitness & Lifestyle

During Autumn term 2 the children are learning about health, fitness and lifestyle. All year groups have been participating, as  part of their PE lessons, in fitness classes and have been educated in healthy living.

 

ALL the children showed exceptional effort throughout this topic and truly tried their best. The enthusiasm they demonstrated was both inspiring and infectious. We are certain that the children will, in the future, make the right choices to live a healthy lifestyle. Well done to all of you!
