Active Trowbridge will facilitate the lessons for year 5 students.
2 hours a week over 6 weeks with the support of their teachers and assistants. Half of the students will take part in the classroom activity while the other half will take part in a sports activity. After an hour they swap over and the lessons are repeated.
Over the course of the program students will cover the following:
Classroom based theory and practical activities:
- The digestion system
- Healthy foods
- Making fruit kebabs
- Making vegetable pizzas
Outdoor sporting activities:
- Individual circuit training
- How to take a pulse
- Games in pairs
- Games in small groups
- Tag games
- Games in large groups
- Army style assault course
All of the games are designed using minimal equipment, so the children are able to recreate the activities at home with their families or friends.
Following the pilot scheme at Grove School, we have been able to tie it in with the National Curricula in Physical Education, Science and Technology, ensuring there is no negative effect on the child's learning.
