As part of NET Academies Harlow Healthy Living Programme, the specialist PE teachers organised a Smoothie Bike workshop across all three schools: Abbotsweld Primary Academy, Latton Green Primary Academy and Longwood Primary Academy. The Smoothie Bike workshop energised the pupils, with a focus on exercise and nutrition!
Smoothie Bike workshops are run by Sport4Life and give students the opportunity to learn about diet in an innovative way. During the workshops, students got the opportunity to take part in a fruit themed warm-up, a blindfolded guess the fruit and finally the main event; the Smoothie Bike.
The pupils worked in teams to blend a mixture of strawberries, pineapple and mango with apple juice, whilst riding a static bike. After each student had helped successfully blend the fruit, they were able to taste their creations!
Mr Bailey commented,
“All the students enjoyed their Smoothie Bike experience and came away learning something new and with smiles on their faces!”
