Ninety pupils aged between five and six years old from local primary schools came toGlebelands School to compete in their Year 2 Multiskills Relay Challenge.
This was an opportunity for the primary children to develop a variety of physical skills, use equipment that they may not have tried before and also experience the size and nature of a secondary school. The children were organised into teams of eight mixed with girls and boys from other schools and were led by Year 9 students from Glebelands. Working in their teams, the children were challenged to races to overcome tests of balance, co-ordination and agility. There was a variety of races from shuttle runs, dribbling basketballs to and from cones, assault courses, egg and spoon races using tennis rackets and tennis balls and hula hooping.
All the teams competed to the best of their ability and their efforts and excellent team work was rewarded with a certificate.
