Animal magic! Pupils ‘wild’ over obstacle course  

 

Have you herd? Hill West Primary school was misnaken for the Serengeti Plain on Monday (4 June).

Lion on the ground

Fearsome reception pupils put their best paws forward to take part in a sponsored animal themed obstacle race, in order to raise funds to enrich the children’s educational experiences at the academy, part of the ATLP.

Roarsome time!

During the holidays, they worked with their parents to create an animal mask of their choice and asked relatives and friends to sponsor them. The children were all buzzing with excitement Monday morning and eager to complete the course.

Teacher Jenny Robinson said:

The children consolidated their physical development skills when completing the course, which was themed around how animals moved. They had to slither like a snake through a tunnel, stalk like a lion- on their hands and knees, jump like a monkey from branch to branch and many more.

Fellow reception teacher Sophie Roberts added:

They all had a roarsome time and all for a good cause!“

There were more animal crackers today (Wednesday) when the children came face to face with some of the creatures who inspired their masks during a visit to Twycross Zoo.
