Middles Well being Carousel

On Thursday all the Middles were involved in a Well Being Carousel as part of our Inquiry. We did lots of different types of activities like Tabloid sports, aerobics, relaxation, movement and balance and a thinking activity.

I thought Mrs Bellesini's activity was very fun and clever because you had to write down the first thing that came to your mind when she said stuff - Nick

I really liked the aerobics because it made me think of how to balance and it also made me think because Louisa said that you don't have to play sport to be fit - Gemma

I enjoyed doing all the activities in the wellbeing carousel. I thought it was a good idea.  I thought it was really fun. I enjoyed the things I hadn't really done a lot of - Matt

I like the tabloid sports and the activity where we did soccer - Connor

I liked all the activities but I really liked the superman activity in the aerobics, because you lay on your chest and lifted up your arms and legs as if you were flying - Amber

I really enjoyed the movement and balance it weas really difficult how you had to throw a ball and balloons to each other, while balancing on one leg - Dan

I really liked the aerobics and the tabloid sports,because one, in the aerobics we had to do squats and then jumps which was tiring after a while. In the tabloid sports was more fun than it looked - Riley

Thank you to Louisa for teaching us about aerobics and I learnt a lot more stuff - Pat

Thank you to all the parents, Louisa, Maureen and David, as well as Mrs Bellesini for coming along to help us.

  1. That looks like so much fun Middles!
    I love aerobics. It was such a great opportunity to learn from experts like Louisa also. Maybe you could teach the seniors some of your new aerobic moves. Good luck keeping fit and staying healthy and happy!

  4. Hi Middles,

    What a great way to learn about being healthy. Your activities look so interesting and a good change to the school routine for the day.
    I wonder if anyone has thought about taking up one of these activities?

    Keep up the great work,
    Ms. Tieppo and 2TM

  5. Hi Middles,
    Thanks for inviting me to be part of your day. I loved all the different activities you did. It shows you sooooo many ways you can help with your own Well Being, that are easy and fun. When I was at school, we didn't have any activities like that! Hope you remember to always think Positive thoughts, and know YOU can CHOOSE how you feel- good or bad, NO ONE else can do it for you!!
    Happy thinking Mrs Bellesini :)

    its looks like your all having fun and being fit ensures a happy healthy mind keep up the great work guys !!

  8. Hello Middle S,

    So many times over the years I organised tabloid sports activities for my grade sport. What I particularly like is the name, "Well Being Carousel". It sounds so much better than tabloid.

    From Nick's comment, I can see you included mental exercise as well as physical. This is an excellent idea. We need both fit bodies and minds to have a happy, healthy life.

    Well done everyone involved. :)
