Year 5 and 6 pupils from ten different schools attended a Gifted & Talented PE Day at Harris Church of England Academy last month. The pupils (and many of their accompanying teachers) participated in a carousel of activities throughout the day which included wheelchair basketball, streetsurf, indoor rowing, taekwondo, kin-ball, bokwa, and the Wasps Interactive Zone.

This gave every pupil the opportunity to try something new, broaden their experience and so extend their acquisition and application of skills. The School Sports Partnership would like to express their gratitude to all of the coaches from Warwickshire Bears Wheelchair Basketball Club and to their surprise guest, GB player Jordanna Bartlett.

Huge thanks also to the Wasps Community Team who delivered coaching master classes throughout the day alongside their superb Wasps Interactive Zone.
