With childhood obesity on the increase in the UK, primary school pupils have been working up a sweat in a bid to keep fit.
Children at Stevenage’s Broom Barns Primary School even roped in the town’s MP, Stephen McPartland, to take part in their Fitter Future workout.
Fitter Future is a national initiative to inspire schools to get their pupils more active, more often, through a series of five to 10-minute online workouts that can be done anywhere.
Broom Barns pupils not only utilise the fun workouts during the school day, but also at their breakfast and after school clubs too.
Mr McPartland said: “A big thank you to Broom Barns and Fitter Future for letting me take part in the activity.

“It was great fun, and teaching the importance of a healthy lifestyle has to start early.
“Broom Barns is an incredibly active school and you can see how much the staff and pupils enjoy the Fitter Future activities.”
