The Billesley blast was launched last week and to aid the teachers we have set up a circuit of exercises that are easily accessible and can be done standing up.
Situated around our playground are 6 simple exercises that all the children can have fun taking part in while improving their physical and mental state.
Wednesday 7th November Billesley entered their first Panathlon. A Panathlon is a series of activities set up in a circuit in which the children play each one for a certain amount of time, then rotated so that they play everyone.
The activities included Boccia, New age Kurling and lots of other adapted activities.
We took a squad of 6 children who thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
Kane said “I’ve never been given a medal before”
The children experienced a wide range of skills and challenges throughout the day.
Monday 22nd October Billesley played in their first league matches. The boys showed lots of resilience and character to come from behind in both games to win both. Well done boys.
