Y2 Multisports Club at Lunchtime

The Year 2’s have started their transition to Year 3 in the Junior School. Mr Barton and Mr Paterson have been collecting the children and been taking them to the playground or the filed. The sports leaders have taken charge and have played fun and interactive games with the children. The Year 2’s have learnt a lot from the sports leaders and the sport leaders have developed and learnt a lot from taking the Year 2’s. Thank you to the sports leaders for being great role models and thank you to the Year 2 children for having such great attitudes towards something new. We look forward to properly welcoming you to Hamworthy Park Junior School in September.
