Pupils at Studlands Rise First School have taken part in the National Fitness Day, co-ordinated by the health body ukactive.

The kick-off event began at 10am on Wednesday last week when the whole of the school enjoyed 10 minutes of samba fitness.

This coincided with youth workouts across the UK for the ‘10 at 10’ project, which saw children in thousands of schools take part in a 10-minute workout at 10am. Throughout the day the children also took part in various active classroom sessions which included mindfulness pilates, dance and health related exercises as well as lots of fun and games during break and lunchtime.

The day ended with a whole school celebratory assembly which emphasised the importance of a healthy active lifestyle and of course some more physical activity.

PE subject lead Mrs Hill said: “It was fantastic to see all the children enjoying a variety of activities throughout the day.

“Because of our modern lifestyles and an increasing reliance on technology, we are less active nowadays, both as adults and as children.

“This is why it’s important to encourage exercise and keeping fit from a young age, which was what the day was all about.”
