Pupils at Exning Primary School have been learning how to take better care of their bodies with help from Newmarket fitness and healthy eating guru Jade Skillen.

Her visit to the school was part of a topic the children have been working on called Wonderful Me which involved looking at a range of issues from biology to the digestive system and healthy living.

Forty-five children from Years 9, 10 and 11 took part in a boot camp session specially organised by Jade and, as part of an enterprise study, also came up with a boot camp workout for their parents, as well as keeping their own food diaries.

“It was all about teaching the children how they can best take care of their bodies and how they can keep them working well,” said teacher Ruth Turner.
