The children really enjoyed their RINKA session this week. RINKA classes offer an alternative approach to developing fitness because there is no element of competition whatsoever. They do not focus on the fastest runner or strongest footballer but rather encourage each child to develop at their own pace.
They focus on making fitness fun for all, not just for the children who love sport already. The children also learned about the importance of healthy diets and making healthy lifestyle choices.
Children, remember to…
We’re very lucky that our spacious school building has allowed us to set up two Sensory Rooms; one adjoining each of our two classrooms.
Having worked with several occupational therapists and other specialised educational professionals over the years, we made it our mission to provide more opportunities for multi-sensory learning in our school.
The Sensory Room is a relaxing, yet stimulating, learning environment. The wide range of activities and resources we have included in our Sensory Rooms can help to develop a variety of sensory and developmental skills. Children of all ages and abilities can benefit from these activities which aim to develop their fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye co-ordination, self-regulation, oral language etc. The children love getting the opportunity to go out to the Sensory Room to learn and practise these skills in a fun and hands-on way.
