Kingsmoor Academy – Bodycare
Bodycare has been very successful within our school. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and looked forward to them every week.
Bodycare focuses on key aspects of Health and Fitness and engaged all of our children through exciting opportunities. The sessions were well prepared, visual and practical which motivated all of our children. In all sessions observed the children were on task and made good progress throughout the sessions both in theory and practical work.
The children involved were very positive about the programme and made conscious efforts to improve their health and fitness both at home and at school. We had an increased uptake at Athletics Club as children wanted to achieve extra’ fit ticks’.
This programme provided a good educational experience for the children through fun activities which the children thoroughly enjoyed. All children were able to access the learning and now all recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
The adults involved in leading the sessions developed a good rapport with the children, which the children responded to. Punctual, sharp paced lessons were always provided which retained the children’s interest.
To summarise, Kingsmoor Academy would highly recommend the BodyCare Programme. An educational and fun experience enjoyed by all!
