Sunny formula for healthy learning
Youngsters at a town centre school enjoyed a week of healthy fun in the sun '“ and learned all about science too!
The pupils at Revoe Learning Academy on Grasmere Road, tried their hand at running 1k every day, wildlife watching and gardening at Revoe Park and getting hands on with animal visitors.
They also had visits from a scientist from Salford University, a dentist and guide dogs.
The sunny weather before half term gave the children to get out for some healthy fresh air and make the most of the nearby community garden and help the rangers at Revoe Park.
Year 3 teacher Emma Geeson said they children thoroughly enjoyed their science and health week.
She said: “They had an absolutely brilliant week and the sun enabled us to get out in the community garden.
“They loved helping the wardens sowing seeds, weeding, mulching, planting in the garden.
“For many of the children it was the first time they had ever done anything like that and it really opened their eyes to the possibilities and learning opportunities.
“We hope to be able to do much more there in future.
“Some of the more lively children really enjoyed running a kilometre every day along a route mapped out by Year 6 the week before.”
ICT manager Nick Spann said: “The whole school took part and we had a range of activities throughout the whole week culminating in the work at Revoe Park on Friday.”
