Year 3 Reach New Heights

As part of National Sports Week, Year 3 were invited to our local secondary school, The Reach Free. They were able to experience the wonderful facilities and had the opportunity to learn two new sports, handball and trampolining. All children were ready and motivated to take full advantage of this experience and were so excited to come away with some new skills! We would like to thank the team at The Reach Free for welcoming us and sharing their expertise. We look forward to returning next week for athletics!
