Over 60 Key Stage 1 pupils from Norbriggs Primary, Speedwell Infant, Hollingwood Primary and Poolsbrook Primary school made their way to Netherthorpe School for this event.
The sports hall was packed with excited children as they took part in 11 different activities, all aimed at introducing them to basic movement and gymnastics techniques. The activities included jumping from springboards, balance beams and floor mat exercises.
The event was well received by both the teachers and pupils. Ben Roberts said: “The kids all loved it. It was really well organised.”
The packed event was allowed to run smoothly by the excellent work of our Young Leaders from Netherthorpe School. Many of them on the partnership’s Sports Leaders UK course, they were eager to instruct and help the young children through the different stations, whilst always making them fun and active.
One leader from Netherthorpe said that her favourite thing about this event was, “Watching them all having fun and engaging in the activities!”
There are more Key Steps Gym events scheduled for the next few weeks and already well over 100 pupils have been signed up for the jam-packed fun afternoon!
