Junior School pupils are great sports as they raise money for charity

From the youngest to oldest, Junior School pupils all got involved in a variety of fun-packed energetic activities to help keep them fit and healthy whilst raising money for Sport Relief.

Pre-Reception put their glad rags and dancing shoes on and boogied the afternoon away with their ‘Step Disco’ whilst Reception, Year One and Year Two were full of beans in their ‘Wiggle and Jiggle Step Workout’.

Year Two pupil Isabella Hughes said: “It was great fun as I love to dance” and Gracie Hadfield gave it the thumbs up as she loves to keep fit. Twins George and Gene Mounfield, who are in Reception “loved the music and fast dancing” whilst Susie Yang enjoyed “doing all the arm movements.”

Year Three to Year Six pupils have used the House system to help spur themselves on to raise even more money by holding a number of House sporting events including basketball, sprinting, dodgeball and a penalty shootout.

Vernon House Captain Millie Nuttall said of organising the event for her House: “I enjoyed working with the other House Captains and being responsible for setting everything up. It meant I got to know the other House Captains more and continued to improve our school’s team spirit.”

Pupils then gave a final boost to the total by having a sporting themed non-uniform day. Many football and rugby shirts were on show as were colourful running leggings, trainers and even a taekwondo suit.

Mrs Lisa Turner, Junior School Charity Co-Ordinator, congratulated all the pupils on their “tremendous and energetic efforts raising money for Sports Relief.”

The final total raised will be announced in the Summer term.
