A trip to Ewood Park

Year 6 Girls enjoy a day at Ewood Park

The girls in Year 6 enjoyed an educational and fun-filled day at Ewood Park. The majority of the day was spent investigating how exercise affects the heart rate; the girls used pulsemeters and recorded their pulse rates after jogging for different distances on the warm-up track by the side of the football pitch.

The fantastic ICT suite in the Education Centre was used for typing up results, producing graphs and evaluating their investigations. To complement this work, the girls all took part in an hour long football workshop and were finally treated to a turn on the dance mats. In the usual Westholme spirit, they worked hard, played hard and enjoyed a very worthwhile and memorable day.
