Kayaking and Canoeing
Key Stage 3 and 4 learners have been going out of school every Tuesday and Thursday with Simonside Outdoor Adventure in South Shields, to experience kayaking along the beautiful coastal waters of South Shields. Out on the water, the learners get to partake in a range of activities, from calmly paddling alongside the pier, to surfing the waves in towards the Sand Haven Beach. They have been working on executing a perfect forward stroke and ensuring that they know how to position the paddle blade in a way that allows the learners to pull the water efficiently, whilst at the same time engaging the core muscles through the stroke. Learners have loved every minute of it so far and still have many weeks left to look forward to!
