All pupils from Reception to Year 4 took part. Reception pupils demonstrated their balancing and bean bag skills, Year 2 pupils demonstrated their catchy afternoon aerobic activity, Year 1 and 3 pupils showed their PE books (which were newly introduced this year) and which help children to evaluate their performance in PE; they also gave facts and figures about the impact that PE had shown with regards to both their knowledge and fitness. Finally, Year 4 showed a wonderful slide show to music of their road to the Partnership Indoor Athletics area finals. A wonderful assembly which hopefully has inspired the whole school community to increase their fitness levels.
