Event - Year 5 at Villa Vitality

27 May 2011

Year 5 attended the first day of the 'Villa Vitality' programme, at the Aston Villa Academy. The programme is part of the NHS 'change 4 live' initiative.

Villa Vitality provides an opportunity for children to learn about the importance of regular daily exercise and a balanced diet.

The group 'worked-out' at a physical training session led by coaches at the Academy, had an introduction to 'The Eatwell Plate' which focused on the five food groups and prepared group interviews, based on their learning through-out the day, which they recorded in the Villa Radio studio!

A great day enjoyed by all!
