Leicester Riders

In Science lessons in years 5 and 6 at the moment we are learning about the importance of healthy living and its impact on our futures. So, on Thursday 19th January, the Leicester Riders Basketball Team paid a visit to our school to help us out! 3 of the current players, all from the USA, along with their coach, spent the morning with both classes showing them from a professional athlete’s point of view, how essential a healthy mind and body is.

The children learned more about a balanced diet and the different food groups, the importance and impact of regular exercise on the body, and how and why to say no to smoking.

The children also had a chance to learn some basketball skills from the professionals and then put them into practice with a few games!

It was a fantastic morning and it was very exciting to have some professional sportsmen working with our children.
