There are false reports that lateral flow tests can give you cancer. These rapid tests have been rigorously tested and are safe. The swabs are sterilised with ethylene oxide to ensure they are safe to use. It is one of the most commonly used sterilisation tools. https://t.co/lYWDRluMUh

Taking care of physical, mental social wellbeing

Posted: 25th March 2021

Children have been using virtual PE lessons to take care of their physical, mental and social wellbeing.

During lockdown, students from Sir Frederick Gibberd College continued to work on their fitness, despite not being in school to take part in physical lessons.

A mix of PE theory and practical activities were set for them to complete at home, while children of key worker parents took part at school.

Theory lessons taught students about their bones, joints and muscles. They created detailed diagrams of both the skeletal and muscular system and researched the functions of the musculoskeletal system and how they impact athletic performance in PE.

In their at-home practical lessons, students completed short workouts and stretching routines, followed by mindful breathing exercises.

George Daly, PE lead, said: “The focus of these short practical elements was to make time for our physical, mental and social health each day, especially during these current times.

“Students have been really engaged with their online lessons. We cannot wait to, hopefully, have an amazing summer term of competing together, learning new skills and developing a love of sport and physical activity.

“It is nice to see students taking an active interest in their physical, mental and social health. This past year has been really tough on young people. I hope the constant reminder of the importance of looking after ourselves and the techniques/guidance we have given during and prior to lockdown will have helped all students throughout this difficult time.”
