Keeping Fit and Having Fun!

Students from BedZED enjoyed a visit to the brand new trampoline park in Sutton Village Sports Centre, it is a great facility and provides students with a full body workout.

Students have exclusive access to the trampolines once a week. The weekly session ties in with their well-being and social skills objectives. They queued up to check in for their session and collect their sports socks, they then watched the safety video patiently and listened to instructions from the staff and then the fun started.

The students were excited to have a go on the vast expanse of trampolines. Some were tentative to begin with but after a few minutes they were all in full bounce mode. Lecturer, Ian Chadwick, said “It’s great to see the students so highly motivated, they are really enjoying themselves and keeping fit at the same time. It is amazing how much their confidence has grown in just one session.”

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
