Projeckts Manchester, have been visiting the children in Year 4, introducing Skateboarding! Skateboarding is a great way to exercise and have fun at the same time. It has been proven to increase balance, agility, coordination, and reaction time. It specifically targets the leg muscles and core muscles.
In the beginning, students, who could barely stand on a skateboard in the playground were skating laps around the Projects MCR skate park and by the end of the trip, some children were even daring the skate ramps!
In the process of learning to skateboard, students learn that hard work and perseverance pay off. Well Done!
