Wow, what a great turnout Class 4 had! There were so many enthusiastic parents who joined us this morning for our PE session with Soccer 2000. Everybody had lots of fun working in teams bouncing footballs to make cones flip over and rolling tennis balls so that they hit the cones. Both children and parents were brilliant at both activities and earned lots of points, especially by getting the special orange cones. Well done everyone - a brilliant and fun start to the week!
Cross country relays took place on Saturday 1st February at Tettenhall College.
