Special Event - Villa Vitality: Year 5 visit Aston Villa

30 September 2009

As part of our science topic of Keeping Healthy, Year 5 are working alongside Aston Villa on a health and fitness project. The children have been discovering about food and how to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The scheme is run by the club in partnership with the Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust. The project aims to encourage young people to get involved in sport and to appreciate the importance of eating healthily.

Pupils have been learning about food and drink and have recorded a radio programme as well as taking part in football challenges.
