Students at Maplefields are undertaking 6 challenging weeks of intense rowing lessons, with an overall aim to spend a day at Oundle Rowing Club, to put their newly learnt skills to practice on the water! The students will be chosen, based on their behaviour, effort and attitude during the sessions with Steve. (Development Officer for Inclusive Rowing) This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to experience something new and work together as a Team.

Students across Year 7, 8 & 9 were involved in a whole day of Rowing sessions lead by Steve, who put them through rowing challenges to assess their effort, attitude and ability. The students completed a 4 minute exercise to measure the distance they could travel, as well as how quickly they could cover 100m. The overall attitude of the students was very positive. They worked hard, and pushed themselves to better the distances and times of other students.

First week of 6, and the students were raring to go! After completing a thorough warm up and some stretching, it was straight down to work on the Ergos! The students completed continuous 100m stints with rest periods in between, to see whether they could improve their previous times.

In week 2, the students were given the challenge of completing 100m and 200m stints after each other. This meant that each student had to put maximum effort into it in order to improve the times to complete each distance. Keep going !!

The students this week, focussed on Interval training on the Ergos. They completed four attempts of 200m, with rest periods in between to see whether their times to complete 200m were improved each time. It is taking physical and mental strength to keep going. But with an end goal of a day on the river, the dedication and persistence of the students, is beginning to show through!

Students were really pushed this week, to complete time trials for 200m with rest periods on the Ergos. The students worked exceptionally hard, and supported and encouraged each other extremely well!

After a block of intense weeks, students were measured again on their ability to complete the energy consuming, 4 minute row! The distance covered during the fifth and sixth weeks, within 4minutes had improved for each student, and this is evident in their results. Everyone worked exceptionally hard during these weeks, in preparation for next week on the river! WELL DONE!!

After 6 hard, and challenging weeks on the Rowing machines, the day finally came for the Students to demonstrate the skills they had learnt and put them to practice for real on the water! Check out the Stylish life jackets!
