We had a great time at The Blue School for our sporting afternoon this term!

We were guided by the 6th Form students who planned and led the afternoon. Firstly, we played some parachute games. Then, we went and did some obstacle games. We had to bounce of a spring board and crawl through a tunnel. Finally, we did relay races with hopping, running and hurdles. What a fun afternoon we had! (Falcon Class – have I used my exclamation marks correctly?)
