Great Britain Fitness Gurus are up and running.
Sports Coach Jodie and a small group of Year 5 and 6 children are getting together once a week to research and try out new activities!
Jodie and her team spend time looking at ways of inventing and playing new games whilst also looking at how small changes can help them benefit throughout the school year, both in and outside of the classroom environment.
Can you see Ethan wearing his wristband? He and everyone in the group have a challenge to complete daily.
Can you ask them what it's for?
"I think it's going really well and it's really good. Before I joined, I didn't really notice that being active could be fun, but now I find it enjoyable!"
"It's really good for your health and every time when I do it, the games are actually fun to play. I'm happy that Jodie helps me enjoy it."
"We do change for life to help us keep active and to help us be healthy. Each week we discuss healthy choices and different ways to keep fit. Every Friday lunchtime we play different games that help us keep fit. We play games like dodgeball, hockey, badminton and volleyball each week we try lots of different games which are really fun. We like change for life because it’s fun and it’s something to enjoy but more importantly it motivates us to try and do more to help us keep fit and healthy each week. We called ourselves the Great Britain Fitness Gurus."
