On Thursday English Class fifth graders had a super fitness field trip. They biked through town, across the river to a new wellness and fitness centre called Lastaamo. In Lastaamo’s movement hall they had all sorts of warm-up activities under the guidance of their very own personal trainer, their teacher, Ms. Katri. The pupils did the inchworm, bear crawl, troll walk, lizard walk, crab walk and wheelbarrow for starters.
They did headstands and handstands. In fact, there was a headstand competition which was won by Alisa, pictured in the middle above.
Air yoga was a new experience for everyone. Ms. Katri, along with many others, was really enamored of this activity.
Jumping in the bouncy castle and a rousing game of hide and seek rounded out this awesome day.
