Mr Stretch

June 15, 2015

b13bf59aa1c1ed551e957cc4a986632a_f2714On Thursday, school was lucky enough to be visited by Mr Stretch! Mr Stretch is currently cycling more than 250 miles around Cumbria, visiting thirty primary schools along the way, to help promote active life-styles and healthy living to children across the county. The children were unanimous in saying that Mr Stretch was one of the most popular visitors we have ever had at Houghton School. His forty minute performance, for Key stage 2 children, included lots of important information about exercise (60 minutes a day!), diet (how much sugar is actually in a can of fizzy drink – shocking!) and how to make positive changes to be more healthy (sugar-swaps!) as well as lots of jokes, music, laughter, plate-spinning and juggling! The children were really inspired by Mr Stretch and many were talking about trying a new healthy activity during the summer holidays. Mr Stretch was working in partnership with Active Cumbria, and he left some information with the children on how to find a range of different activities to try this summer, along with some other fun presents. You can also find more information in the ‘Health’ section of our school website, including the link to Active Cumbria’s website as well as a host of other sport and activity clubs. If you can’t find the sport or activity you’re looking for, please come into school and we may be able to help. Thank you Mr Stretch and Active Cumbria!
