Roary Heart Beaters
This free initiative allows us to visit many different schools in the Cheshire East area. The funding we gain from The National League Trust is brilliant and allows the Community Sports Trust to purchase new equipment for our workshop. The session is educational, lively and fun-packed and is aimed at children in years 4, 5 and 6.
Thanks for your recent visit. Y6 loved it. They enjoyed the physical activities and the challenge of working out their heart rate.
The classroom session was informative but the quiz was their highlight. They really tried hard to learn the facts for their team. The visual of the water to show the weight of the blood will stay with them for a long time.
Thanks for coming,
Julie White, Y6 teacher
Thank you for your visit to Whirley today. The children really enjoyed the activities, particularly the quizzes on the heart. They clearly learnt a lot from the session and loved having the opportunity to be a Doctor and listen to each other’s heart beat. The outdoor activities were great and allowed the children to take part in exercise and have fun.
Thank you for your recent visit to Whirley to deliver the Heartbeaters session to the year 6 class.
We had the session in our year 6 class at the end of the last academic year and so were happy to have you back. I was really pleased with the content of the session as it fits perfectly with the year 6 science curriculum unit on the human body. The additional theory work added since the last time you visited was great as it gave the class more learning. The session in the classroom was very interactive and the activities maintained the attention of the children. All 3 presenters were excellent, engaging the children well. Outside, the physical activities were again engaging and very much enjoyed by my class. Overall, they benefited from the relevance of the session content as well as receiving the message about the importance of regular exercise.
I would be very happy to recommend you to other schools and look forward to you visiting our year 4 and 5 classes in the future. Thank you!
