''We thought the whole session was very well organised. The pupils were really interested and excited. They loved doing the animals, especially the cobra and the dog. The cool down was really relaxing and many pupils said they were going to get a lavender bag! Overall, very beneficial for children's posture, self control and gross motor development. Thank you for a great session." - Year 2 Class Teacher

"It was hard but relaxing." - Lucy, 5 years old
"Great! Nice! I loved the three Bears and doing the cobra was my favourite!" - Ethan, 7 years old
"Yoga is excellent! I want to carry on doing it for a long time because I love it!" - Georgina, 7 years old
"Just to thank you for recommending the dance artist, she was excellent. The feedback from staff, and excitement/engagement from the pupils together with the final performance assembly was fantastic! The diverse styles of dance for the various year groups was particularly impressive to watch - more so given the short timescales the children had to master the routines; and master these routines they certainly did! A truly enjoyable experience for all. The dance artist had a lovely manner with the pupils and at the school's request, I will certainly be booking WFS again. Excellent, great use of appropriate vocabulary, pupils really enthusiastic and learned a lot. Thank you." - A.K Morris
"Thanks once again for providing another fantastic week for the young people in Hall Green. The pupils all thoroughly enjoyed the circus themed week and were particularly enamored of the 'Strong Man Boxing' sessions! There was plenty to keep them occupied each day and all through the week." - Year 6 teaching assistant
Tai Chi workshops 9th March 2018
The feedback from the staff and children was very positive and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the sessions, thank you.
Staff reported that Ron pitched the session perfectly for the age of the children and some staff are already talking about how to incorporate some Tai Chi into their daily class timetable.
Here is some feedback from my Y6 children:
It helped my mind restart and forget everything and stop worrying.
"It took my mind off any problems I've had over the past few days."
"It was very calm and relaxing".
