Parent Athletics Workshop

Ariyah's Dad Omar who is an athlete came into to do an athletic workshop with the Grasshoppers. Omar showed the children a selection of athletic exercises and they started off with warm up exercises to get their large muscles all warmed up. They then had fun taking part in action songs and dances including head, shoulders, knees and toes, the hokey cokey as well as sleeping bunnies to teach the children how to follow simple instructions. Large scale movements were also practiced to get their heart rates up including running, jumping and start jumps. mathematics was incorporated as the children practised counting their start jumps. Thank you Omar!
