Learning about PE is as easy as ABC when you have an enthusiastic team of young sports leaders to help you.

Students from Sutton Academy put these primary pupils through their paces in a cup-stacking beanbag-balancing afternoon of activities.

It was part of a breathless afternoon of agility, balance and coordination challenges for the pupils from Leamington Primary School.

Sutton Academy teacher Marie Dymond said: “Thirty of our Year 10 Sports Leaders ran a very successful multi-skills event for 60 Foundation and Year 1 children from Leamington Primary. They worked in teams to deliver activities such as curling, cup stacking, hurdles and target throw amongst others.

“It was an absolutely fantastic morning.

“They represented the school very well and Leamington teachers’ commented very positively on the event and the conduct and skills of our young leaders.

“Lots of parents came to watch and the event was a huge success. It was a really good day.”

Youngsters took part in indoor curling, cup stacking - building pyramids with cups as fast as they can, which develops coordination, hurdles, target throwing and balancing on beams .

The ABC activities have become an annual event for the academy and its family of primary schools.

An event for the sponsorship diary will take place 12 June, when the academy is taking part in the Schools Race For life, raising money for Cancer Research. The day will involve the whole school, both girls and boys.
