Today we joined the nation to raise money and get fit and healthy by taking part in activities for Sports Relief. Staff and pupils dressed in sports wear for a £1 donation and everyone looked very sporty as you can see in the photos!
Pupils were encouraged to walk or travel the daily mile in a course set up in and around school - they travelled the distance however was best for them, walking, pushing in a chair, or simply being pushed and enjoying the fresh air.
The regular Friday cafe run by A11 sold sports relief fruit salad pots for £1 to promote healthy eating choices.
Staff took part in a sports relief sweepstake, paying £2 to choose an item of sports kit with a prize of £32 for the winner (well done Lucky Donna!) and £32 sent to sports relief – we unlocked the answer after 3pm to reveal the winner.
At lunchtime, pupils were able to take part in ‘beat the goalie’ and bowling in the A11 outdoor area - we were really lucky to have Dylan who is a disabled football team member to act as goalie for the children to beat!
Everyone had a really good day, used lots of energy to do sports and we raised money for this worthy cause - thanks to Liz and Bex for organising the events.
