Sport Relief Day - posted 29th Mar

The week beginning the 23rd March saw Talavera begin their challenge to raise awareness and money for sport relief. Each day, every class took part in a different sporting activity. Not only did it make us more aware of other countries who need support, we were able to improve our fitness and have fun whilst helping others. We skipped, danced, hula-hooped and ran our way through the week to support sport relief. It all ended on the Friday with a fitness course ran by Mr Rendle and Miss Dobbs for both the infants and the juniors. We endured three minutes of exercises per activity whilst dressed in our favourite sports gear. A great week of fun, fitness and raising money!
