Boys’ Junior School News

BOYS AND ONLINE LEARNING POSTURE

It is not surprising that, given they are very much kinaesthetic learners, and therefore want to move and fidget, boys find passive, online learning challenging, and can end up in all sorts of unique positions while looking at screens and then potentially, neck and back challenges.

Andi Dowling, a current Tintern Parent and Physio, working for the Physica Physiotherapists Group has diligently constructed tips for Posture during Online Learning, and has designed some amazing GROICK-based exercises to promote and assist with posture during online learning.

These were shared with our at Assembly on Monday.  My sincerest thanks and gratitude to Andi for not just her expertise, but her amazing commitment to providing care for our boys.
