Year 4 students recently went to Flex Gym and had a great time. They had been studying how bodies move and the benefits of healthy eating and exercise, and got to put their knowledge into action at the gym. On arrival the students were divided into four groups and got to experience rock climbing, basketball, karate and also had time to play in the soft play area.
Between activities the excitement was palpable as the students were describing their newly learned skills. “I liked karate the most because we learned how to defend ourselves,” Rakan said. Basmil thought that “rock climbing was the most exercise because I would climb a little and then fall. I got so tired and had to try again and again to get to the top.” This was also an opportunity for the students not only to get better at individual activities, but also to practise working as a part of a team. Muaaz “liked basketball the most because you had to pass the ball to someone on your team to win.” The students left the gym feeling enthusiastic about exercise and keeping their bodies healthy and were full of promises to develop their interest in sport.
