Every week, the boys in PS and Reception enjoy a yoga lesson with Mrs Birch (no relation to our Mr Birch!).
Mrs Birch explains:
"The boys have been introduced to yoga in a fun way that appeals to young children; they will learn a variety of traditional yoga postures with an age appropriate slant.
As well as the postures the boys will explore the techniques of correct breathing and relaxation. They will be encouraged to cooperate with others, explore the concepts of stillness and silence and increase their awareness of their own bodies and those around them. This will be achieved through partner work and whole group activities.
By doing the postures the boys will develop their balancing skills and their strength, as well as increasing their flexibility. As far as possible we will take the current themes of the class and topical events and incorporate them into the yoga classes."
