During these uncertain times, we believe it is vital to keep morale high and to look after our wellbeing. Wodensborough Ormiston Academy has the same idea for its staff and students and has been organising the ‘WOA Workouts and Wellbeing’ daily challenges.
Using Google Classroom, Lauren Newman – physical education and performing arts teacher – posts daily workout challenges for staff and students to participate in. Each morning a challenge is uploaded for students to take part in at home, with exercises using their own bodies or home-made equipment. Cans of beans are not just for eating!
Ms Newman commented:
It has already been a real success at WOA with 172 students joining the classroom and interacting and engaging in the daily challenges along with their teachers.
There’s been a great response from staff at the school attempting the challenges, and they are encouraging all students at home to take part and beat their efforts. WOA is really ensuring all its students are staying active during this time of crisis.
