Yoga - FREE
Yoga is a none-competitive activity where children are able to relax and work with pupils from other classes. The posture work requires them to use their concentration, and engages their imagination as they carry out such as the 'cat','cobra' 'starfish' or 'tree'. Peer leadership is used within the group, and this is confidence building for the ones who wish to demonstrate and lead, it also encourages team building. They all enjoy the element of using relaxation techniques within the session - hopefully leaving them feeling refreshed and recharged ready for their afternoon ahead. The class is held on a Wednesday lunch-time and is attended by children from Year 2 up to Year 6.
