Schools Primaries get active for Sport Relief
taff and children at Wheatfield Primary School held a series of events throughout the week leading up to Sports Relief on Friday 23rd March. This included hula hooping, penalty shoot outs, Zumba classes and the whole school taking part in a one-mile run around Bradley Stoke. On the actual day, staff at the school challenged some of the parents to a netball match – competition was fierce with the parents coming out on top by a wide margin. Parents were asked to send in donations for children completing all of the challenges and tea and cakes were on sale for spectators of the netball match to raise money for the event. Bowsland Green Primary School went Sport Relief crazy by taking part in lots of
challenges. The children created ‘wake and shake’ routines, took part in a danceathon and walked a mile during Sport Relief week. As well as this, some of the teachers at Bowsland Green decided to complete a 24-hour football challenge. Mr Stephenson, Mr Young and Mr Thomas (left to right in photo) started playing football at 4pm on Thursday 22nd March and finished at 4pm on Friday 23rd March. They stayed on the school grounds for the whole 24 hours, playing matches, learning new tricks and by keeping the ball at their feet. During the event, both staff and students supported them by joining in and encouraging them to continue. Sponsorship money is still coming in, but it is hoped that the event will raise at least £750.
