Not a typical Monday morning, as 14 of our KS2 children ventured off to Marjons University for a brand new Change for life festival where the children attending would get to try a range of new activities and what a day they had. Sporting our fabulous new school sports bibs they were definitely up for the challange of the day ahead.
Two of our wonderful Bronze ambassador sports leaders also had the opportunity to attend a specialised training day where they got to plan and try out activities and learn about how to run a change for life challenge club that they will be starting at school after the Easter break, while meeting and chatting with the visiting Olympian.
The morning started with meeting a GB Olympic swimmer Cassie Patten, who had her Olympic Bronze medal on show for all the children to touch and look at as well as signing their individual event passports and posing for pictures with them. We then began the first activity of the day which for the Wembury team was Dance and movement cheerleader style. The children had to learn a lively, energetic routine and perform it to music - watch out on the side lines of our next home sporting event!
After that wake up shake up it was time for something slightly calmer. Into the Yoga studio we went where we were taught breathing techniques, sun salutaions and how to focus our energies, balance and stretch our bodies to get the best out of them.
All of this activity certainly worked up an appetite as we broke for lunch, then on with the afternoon sessions which involved the climbing wall. Much fun was had while the children scrambled up the climbing wall using all their strengh to pull them selves up and along the wall.
The final session of the day was on the inflatable assault course where the children had to race against the clock and another school relay style whilst bouncing their way to victory and rumage around in the ball pool to find fruits and vegetables to complete the puzzles. Even our Bronze ambassadors made it back after their training to join in the fun!
All the children attending had a magnificant time and were a real credit to themselves and our school, they should be very proud of themselves not to mention incredibly tired!
An amazing event today hosted by Marjons University and run by the PSSP with Marjons students running many of the events, a huge well done and thank you to you all. We look forward to the next one!
