Youngsters in Key Stage Two tackled two different disciplines at the start of the week with tasters in taekwondo and American football.

The whole school came together for a dance and aerobics session and in a separate event, years five and six led the activities for pupils in year one and two.

The school had to cancel its planned sports day due to the weather but instead the pupils learnt about healthy eating and were encouraged to try and range of unusual fruit and vegetables.

To finish off the week, all of the youngsters got on their bikes for wheely day.
