Well-being Festival | October 11, 2017

Year 4 attended a Well-being Festival at Silksworth Leisure Centre. Below is an account of the day by one of the attending pupils and an accompanying video slideshow:

On Thursday 5th October Year 4 went to Silksworth Leisure centre for a Well-Being festival. We went there to learn about keeping fit and exercising. We took part in Brazilian soccer, yoga, skipping (in which I got tangled), dancing and dodgeball. The other group got to make smoothies using power from an exercise bike. We also got to do a kickabout with Sunderland AFC and learn new skills. We were only there for the morning but it felt like all day because we were so worn out from the exercising.
