During this session we introduce children to the important role their feet have for many of their favourite activities, introduce them to the names of the bones involved and discuss the role of a podiatrist. They will complete a workbook that they can take home, part of which records their data and graph from an investigation we run with them into ‘whether taller people have bigger feet’. Usually we all enjoy these activities and have lots to discuss throughout the session.
