On the 27th September, Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Peter at A-Life. Peter came to our school to deliver not only one but two workshops to support the children's learning in our Science unit 'Animals Including Humans'. The day began with a Healthy Living Workshop where the children, supported by some super Year 4 helpers, completed a range of hands on, practical activity consolidating their learning about the importance of hygiene, exercise and eating the right amounts and types of food.

In the afternoon, Peter then took them on a fun fitness adventure. Here, the children lived through an exciting, adventure story which involved practical exercise activities to match the story being told. It was a fantastic experience and the children truly benefited from the day. 

Below, check out some of the children's insights on the workshop

"The workshop was very nice because I learnt some new things about fruits and vegetables. I didn't know that mangoes grew on trees!" Amelia, 2 Dali

"I learnt that food goes through your digestive system." Tavia, 2 Gaudi

"I was surprised to find out that orange juice has more sugar than coke!" Lily, 2 Gaudi

"I learnt how much sugar sweet things really have and I was shocked!" Henry, 2 Dali

"I will make sure I am exercising every day!" Shamla, 2 Hockney
