On Friday, 16th March 2018, Thorpedene Primary School had a day of sporting activities and managed to raise nearly £300 for Sport Relief. Children took part in a mile long obstacle course on the field (the weather was perfect) and had to complete as many as they could in 45 minutes. Meanwhile in Starboard Hall, two international athletes took the children through a gruelling but thoroughly enjoyable fitness circuit followed by a special assembly in the afternoon. The assembly wasn’t just an opportunity for the children to hear about sport but also for them to reflect on what it takes to be a successful athlete and how we can use our Growth Mindset skills to help us to achieve. Children and staff really enjoyed the day and this has served as an excellent warm-up for our Healthy Week in June!
