SOME OF Kintyre’s West Road schools have been thinking into how well they move.

Rhunahaorine and Gigha schools joined pupils at Glenbarr for a Better Movers and Thinkers (BMT) session, led by PE coordinator Rona Young.
P1-3 pupils had an active start to their day while the P4-7 took part in a variety of activities including body lift, body parts, finger taps, clap patterns and fours on the spot.

The pupils worked together and practised numeracy and literacy including counting, times tables and spelling.

The older and younger pupils took it in turns to carry out a team building challenge to see who could build the tallest and strongest tower using only dried spaghetti and marshmallows, and to try some gymnastics activities with Rona using BMT.

A spokesperson said: ‘All pupils enjoyed the day and the staff saw how easily BMT could be put into daily practice in PE lessons.’
