Children in NeedPosted: 19th November 2019
Excited children started Children in Need day with a workout with Pudsey Bear.
Fitness coach and Children in Need ambassador Joe Wicks inspired young people up and down the country to get active by taking part in the Big Morning Move.
Pupils, parents and teachers at Magna Carta Primary Academy tuned in to the live stream to take part in the warm-up and ten minutes of exercise.
Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “We always take part in Children in Need as it is a national charity for children. Young people need to know there are children less fortunate than themselves and that it is everyone’s responsibility to support them. It is children helping children.
“This particular initiative with Joe Wicks also helps to promote physical fitness. It is another opportunity to show children that being physically active can be fun, free and – although they will not realise it – releases happy endorphins that make you feel good.
“It is nice to do something with the whole school together, so siblings and families can share the experience.”
Pupils made donations to wear their sports kits and take part in the activity.
