Emmbrook gets active



ON 20th March 2018, Emmbrook Junior School took part in an activity for Sports Relief called “The Hour of Movement”.

Sports Relief is a charity that raises money for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

We were given sponsorshi­p forms and were asked to raise as much money as possible. It was a spectacula­r day and was lots of fun, everyone else enjoyed it just as much as we did. Here are what some of our pupils enjoyed about it:

“I loved it because we got to skip and play stuck in the mud!”- Jessie (Year 3).

“I liked the way we got to do sports and have fun at the same time as helping people.”- Beth (Year 4).

“It was good because we got lots of exercise.”James (Year 5).

“I liked it because it was good getting people to raise money for a good cause.”- Frankie (Year 6).

Our amazing PE teacher, Mr Fisher, organised this activity. Here is his perspectiv­e on how the event went.

“It was very good, all the children were very enthusiast­ic, it was great to see all the pupils with smiles on their faces.”- Mr Fisher

All the children were given a choice of many different activities such as: running and walking laps around the playground, (some children achieved over 25 laps) dancing, skipping and we also played a big round of stuck in the mud at the end.

We would like to thank Mr Fisher, Mr Thomas, Mr Fenton and Mr Theobald for organising this incredible event, which we hope will help many people.

The total amount of money we raised is yet to be confirmed, but we are very proud of what we have achieved.
