Virtual Sports Week 2020

Virtual Sports Week 2020

Last week, to celebrate National Sports Week, we held out own Virtual Sports Week for the children at home and in school. It was fantastic to see everyone involved and enjoying the different activities. Thank you also to all the parents, friends and family who participated, I’m not sure who was having the most fun!


It was a close competition in the end, but the eventual winners were Abbey, so well done to you. I hope you enjoy the video and keep yourself active over the next few weeks!

We send a big thank you again to Tewkesbury Morrisons!
