Today, the whole school took part in some baseline fitness tests to try and improve each child's individual fitness levels during the school year. The children in key stage 1 had to see how many laps that could run in three minutes and the children in key stage 2 had four minutes to do the same. We will be testing the children again in the summer term to see if they can increase their personal number of laps!
