Time-travel students link art and exercise

 The Art and PE departments combined forces to take students back to the 1980s while at the same time promoting a more active lifestyle.

Year 8 students looked at the work of the influential 1980s artist Keith Haring and they made clear connections with the current Change 4 Life campaign.

Half the time was spent on different physical activities to stretch and challenge speed, reflexes, muscles and heart and for the other half students worked in House teams to create bold, vibrant murals in response to Keith Haring's artwork.

They were asked to promote the Change 4 Life ethos by using expressive lines to show the appearance of movement and activity. The enthusiasm and effort put in helped create some fantastic outcomes.

 A carousel of exciting, fast-paced activity stations was used to help students raise their heart-rates and add to their recommended 60 active minutes per day.

Speed, reactions, coordination and stamina were all challenged as students rotated around the activity stations. The hall was full of enthusiastic energy with students taking on burpees, a speed stack challenge, rowing, dance mats, skipping and hurdles among many other activities.

The Art and PE staff couldn't have asked for more enthusiastic students or higher participation levels. Well done Year 8!
