Harlands Primary School and Ducklings Nursery children took part in a boot camp yesterday but this was all about fun rather than harsh discipline and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
They dribbled around obstacles using hockey sticks and pucks, hurled themselves around on a bouncy castle, tested their throwing and balancing skills and did exercises too.
Each activity lasted three minutes and the person most tested must have been Julia Jones who ran the boot camp style exercise corner. She worked out with the children each time.
All the helpers were members of the Friends of Harlands who organised the event as their first fund-raising activity of the school year 2016-17.
The children, from nursery and reception through to Year 6, took part at different times during the day and sponsorship money raised will go towards new outdoor learning areas for the whole school.
Some classes already have outdoor learning areas and those will be revamped while new ones will be provided for those that don’t.
Other fund-raising events coming up include the green token box at Waitrose during November, a Christmas party for children and an outdoor fair for adults on Friday, December 9, a quiz night at Ridgewood Village Hall on Saturday, March 4 and a summer fair next year too.
