Children from St John’s Primary School in Hoveton get a taste of the Olympics

Children at St John's Primary School in Hoveton took part in an Olympic week which included a visit to Whitlingham Outdoor Education Centre.

The 50 pupils from year three and four tried their hand at wind-surfing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing and archery and at the end of each activity they had to complete a mini-challenge.

The top three scoring children in each activity were presented with gold, silver and bronze medals by the staff at Whitlingham.

During the week pupils also painted their own London 2012 inspired t-shirt.
