Pupils at a Scole school tried out their skateboarding skills today as part of a push to introduce children to new sports.
Every class at Scole Church of England VC Primary School was given a chance to learn skateboarding skills with help from a specialist team.
Children were provided with skateboards, helmets, arm guards and knee protectors and were given sessions on balance and control and how the board works.
Staff hope some of the pupils will take up skateboarding in their free time.
PE co-ordinator Claire Goldsmith said:
“Everyone has had a fabulous day at Scole Primary. With skateboarding being added to the sports at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics we thought this was an excellent way to introduce the children to this exciting and exhilarating sport. We’ve already had a Bhangra dance day, karate taster session and after school clubs including archery, fencing, lacrosse and street dance this year.”
