During the day all year groups took part in a run of different distances. Key stage 1 loved the run around the whole of school playground with the two exercise stations, 10 star jumps and 5 squats. This was brilliantly supported by our year 5 playleaders.

Key stage 2 had the same exercise stations but ran a mile starting at school and running to the end of Trittiford road and back again accompanied by our fit and athletic staff and cheered on by the local community.

Priory Tennis Club – She Rally

Thursday 1st March 2018 we were given a brilliant opportunity to take a group year 1 and 2 girls to participate in one of Judy Murray’s tennis she rallies. This is a program that focuses on getting girls engaged in sport through tennis.

We took 29 girls to Edgbaston Priory Tennis club where they did 2 hours of different tennis and coordination based activities. A variety of equipment meant that all the girls could access the skills in many different ways.
