Change 4 Life Festival
On Wednesday (15th June) our change 4 life club children attended a festival at Freeman’s Quay to learn more about keeping healthy. Poppy was one of the 9 children who attended, along with 3 sports leaders. Here is what she has to say …..
My experience was great. We had a race with a race light, one at a time we threw a ball into the net a camera was behind the net. We played a game where we pressed the buttons that lit up and we played a jumping game where you had to jump to the edges. The last game was a stretching and pulling, we had one extra game it was a rowing machine.
