Let’s get physical!

BTEC L3 teacher Mark Ames takes a more practical approach when it comes to stimulating his students' interest.

Sitting in a classroom for endless hours is common for students as they continue their studies after GCSE’s. Sitting in a classroom set on a beach however is a unique learning environment and offers the perfect opportunity for BTEC teacher Mark Ames to stimulate his pupils’ mind through physical activity.

Mark believes that these interspersions of aerobic exercise between lessons is essential in boosting his pupils’ mood and fundamental in them achieving the following:

  • Boosting memory
  • Improving concentration
  • Enhancing creativity
  • Improving mental health

“As a real lover of sport, I truly believe that physical activity has a positive effect on a young person’s ability to focus and stay on-task. It helps them to learn better, remember more, and combat stress. Having the beach right outside our classroom gives students the space to clear their minds and take on new challenges both inside and outside the classroom”

Love it or hate it, Mark’s fitness sessions are now common practice and while not everyone looks forward to them, there is no doubt in his mind at least that by encouraging physical activity, it is keeping his students’ brains active and allowing them to achieve much more.
