National Girls Football Day

We celebrate National Girls Football Day to inspire Girls to join the sport!

To celebrate it being a Leap Year, we decided to raise money by leaping the week away during the 26th February – 1st March 2024!  

Each child completed a series of challenges which included: 

 ü  Hopscotch    ü  Leaping like a frog    ü  Bouncing like a bunny    ü  Hopping on one leg    ü  Hurdling obstacles    ü  Reaching for the stars

We raised £100 to spend on P.E. equipment for our children - well done to everyone who took part and thank you to parents for donating!
