Fitness for youngsters has assumed greater significance of late, with growing concerns at a national level over the incidence of childhood obesity and the relative lack of physical exercise.
As reported recently, Haddenham Community Infant School has introduced its Daily Mile fitness regime — see here.
In similar vein, and as part of its special focus this week, Haddenham St Mary's School hosted its popular annual walkers' breakfast and playground Jazzercise, in association with the Travel Plan team.
So, on Wednesday morning 25th May, the cobwebs were well and truly blown away with a lively Jazzercise session on the school playground, led by Janey Enticott, before school lessons got underway.
As you will see from the photographs, the invitation "to get physical" was extended to parents and staff as well as the children, and great fun was had by all!
And to help fuel all the extra exertion, there was even a light breakfast of croissant and fruit laid on in the school playground.
Lots of photographs to enjoy — click on any one to see an enlarged version.
