PUPILS were put through their paces when a fitness instructor visited their Basingstoke school.

Personal trainer Kayley Easterbrook led a fitness session with Year 6 pupils at Manor Field Junior School, in Haydn Road, Brighton Hill.

Among the exercises that children did were star jumps, press-ups and burpees.

The trainer, from Maximum Fitness Boot Camp, in Overton, also gave a presentation to the children about the importance of keeping healthy, and how doing exercise can have a positive effect, physically and mentally.

The session was organised in advance of a feast of healthy food, which took place at the school last Friday.

Children have been making healthy versions of popular dishes and offered them for sale to parents.

Year 6 teacher Jenny Bunkle, who organised the fitness class, said the youngsters have been learning about healthy eating and exercise.

She said: “They got a lot out of it and a few of them went home and got their parents to do the exercises that evening.”
