Just horsing around

Friday 9th December 2016

Our female students have been horse riding as part of PE this term. They have really enjoyed learning how to ride and getting out into the countryside at Daisy Nook. They made great progress and learnt to trot independently.

Horse riding is just one element of our varied PE curriculum which has so far included indoor climbing at Rock Over Climbing; trampolining at Go Air; water sports at Salford Water Sports Centre; boxing at Moston and Collyhurst Lads Club; and ice-skating in Altringham.  We are looking forward to enjoying the Snow Park next week at the Chill Factore. 

Next term we will move on to a unit of personal fitness in the Factory’s fitness suite with personal trainer and local youth worker Jonny Warnes.

We want our pupils to enjoy sport and understand that physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.  By widening their experiences of the outside world and enabling them to face fresh challenges we are equipping our pupils to take their place in society as resilient and resourceful young people.
