Age Groups

All Year Groups

Healthy Workshops

Workshops in this category include: Healthy Eating, Massage in School Workshops, Yoga, Tai Chi, Wellbeing and Mindfulness.

These workshops offer pupils a chance to experience the delights of yoga and relaxation. Classes are designed to stimulate pupils' powers of imagination, maintain their natural flexibility and teach them to breathe correctly. Some of the overall benefits to them are improved concentration levels, better sleep patterns, greater self- esteem and a stronger immune system.

Packages for Foundation and Key Stage One
Yoga for this age range is great for creative thinking. Pupils are led through creative stories and exciting adventures that stimulate their imagination and help to maintain their natural flexibility. Whilst enjoying a variety of safe postures, they sing songs, play games and work together. Stimulus includes music, songs rhymes, puppets and the child's natural curiosity and ideas to develop the story. Stories are based around planning and topic themes and involve a wonderful combination of stretches, back arches, twists and balances. These combine to support and strengthen pupils, not only physically but also mentally.

Testimonials

"Just to thank you for recommending the dance artist, she was excellent. The feedback from staff, and excitement/engagement from the pupils together with the final performance assembly was fantastic! The diverse styles of dance for the various year groups was particularly impressive to watch - more so given the short timescales the children had to master the routines; and master these routines they certainly did! A truly enjoyable experience for all. The dance artist had a lovely manner with the pupils and at the school's request, I will certainly be booking WFS again. Excellent, great use of appropriate vocabulary, pupils really enthusiastic and learned a lot. Thank you." - A.K Morris
