Pupils put through their paces

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

Year six pupils be­came teach­ers for the day at The Oaks Pri­mary Acad­emy, Maid­stone, as they or­gan­ised a fit­ness rou­tine for the whole school.

The stu­dents have been com­bin­ing their sci­ence and PE lessons to­gether this term in or­der to in­ves­ti­gate the ef­fect that exercise has on your heart rate.

And the 10 and 11-year-olds at the Tree Av­enue school then went one fur­ther in a bid to in­spire younger pupils to stay healthy and ac­tive.

The chil­dren were put through their paces with a range of dif­fer­ent ex­er­cises and ac­tiv­i­ties, but far from be­ing put off by the ex­pe­ri­ence, they ap­peared to em­brace it with pos­i­tiv­ity and an abun­dance of en­thu­si­asm.

Fruit was also handed out to the year three pupils to demon­strate the ben­e­fits of a healthy, bal­anced diet.
