While some were in the science laboratories, other students were showing off their Bollywood dancing skills with a special dance class at Nelson Academy.

Year 4 students were led by Tina Vallance of Jaya Dance Group for the session which proved popular with the youngsters as they dressed in full Bollywood attire before learning a full dance routine.

Other Healthy Living Week activities included a visit from the fire brigade to bring the children up to speed on road safety and an assembly by Frances Rayner about the Downham Games taking place on June 12.

The academy had different people in every day to talk to the children who tried their hand at mindfulness sessions which saw them learning about meditation. They also had fitness football, inter-house competitions and completed a mini marathon mid-week too.
