Tweedmouth Middle School pupils taking part in the Super Movers exercise experiment.

The experiment is looking at how physical activity impacts on learning.

Two of the Year 6 classes completed a mental activity in the classroom then one class was sent away to take part in some physical sessions run by Paul Yeadon, from Newcastle United Foundation – accompanied by Monty the Magpie – while the other class remained in the classroom to do some arithmetic papers.

Both classes were then given the same mental activity to do again to compare how exercise had impacted on brain function.

They also worked with Newcastle United Foundation creating some of their own goal celebrations.
