On Friday 2nd of September, a group of children from Rolleston had the opportunity to go to Loughborough University and watch the National Sainsbury’s School Games competition. The day consisted of athletes from England, Scotland and Wales competing against each other for bronze, silver and gold medals. We had the chance to watch a range of sports throughout the day such as athletics, gymnastics, rugby and wheelchair tennis. The children also had the opportunity to take part in some sporting activities themselves, which they all took part and enjoyed
