Let’s Get Fit Workshop
On Wednesday this week, each of our classes enjoyed a Let's Get Fit Workshop with Daniel Leight from Fit4Kids.
The Let's Get Fit! workshops included:
¨ Introduction - Being active is important to health and benefits of exercise.
¨ Warmup and Stretch - Go through activities and explain the benefits and describe light, moderate and hard exercise.
¨ Amounts of energy contain certain foods and drinks and equating that for the amount of exercise needed.
¨ Exercise Spinning Wheel
¨ Tabata workout to music
¨ Cool down and Stretch - Go through activities and explain the benefits.
The Let's Get Fit workshops were fun and energetic and they highlighted the importance and promoted the benefits of physical activity and exercise - focussing on all things fitness! Throughout these workshops, the pupils were extremely active for the majority of the time, developing an understanding of the different components that made up a strong and solid workout. Danny introduced each workshop through a warmup and stretch, before really ramping up the level! In their sessions, the pupils developed an understanding of energy levels, and the amount of effort needed to reap the benefits. Using the Spinning Wheels they created a Tabata workout for the class to really get the blood pumping! Finishing off with a cool down and stretch.
The staff pupils and staff agreed the workshops were great fun. Thank you to Danny Leight (who said that our pupils were amazingly behaved!) and our PE Leader, Mrs McInnes, for organising this brilliant event!
