Have you herd? A Sutton Coldfield school was mis-snaken for the Serengeti Plain last Monday, 4th June.
Fearsome reception pupils put their best paws forward to take part in a sponsored animal themed obstacle race, in order to raise funds to enrich the children’s educational experiences at Hill West Primary School.
During the holidays, they worked with their parents to create an animal mask of their choice and asked relatives and friends to sponsor them. The children were all buzzing with excitement during the morning and eager to complete the course.
Teacher Jenny Robinson said:
“The children consolidated their physical development skills when completing the course, which was themed around how animals moved. They had to slither like a snake through a tunnel, stalk like a lion- on their hands and knees, jump like a monkey from branch to branch and many more.”
Fellow reception teacher Sophie Roberts added:
“They all had a roarsome time and all for a good cause!”
There were more animal crackers on Wednesday when the children came face to face with some of the creatures who inspired their masks during a visit to Twycross Zoo.
