In this activity students and teachers had been asked to present information about their schools in terms of how active we are and consider what we could do to make the school day more active. Finland described the tests they do with 8thgrade students – they are timed climbing the school stairs and they then calculate the amount of power using mass, height and gravitational pull divided by time. The English students and teachers described how we have a fitness studio and yoga on offer to all students outside of curriculum time, we looked at our school specific scholarship programmes and compared the number of hours a week BTC sports do with compulsory PE lessons. Evieand Kai came up with some thoughtful suggestions to make students more active eg, replace our 20 minutes form period time with some exercise or cycling or encourage walking in the local area. The French teams presented information about the different sports on offer at their schools.
