Young primary school children have been taking part in sports activities designed to give them a foundation for the future.

More than 500 Year 1 and Year 2 pupils from Morton, Thurlby, Edenham and Baston primary schools and Bourne Abbey and Bourne Westfield primary academies have been learning core skills which will help improve them in all sports.

Three days of events were held over three days.

School sports co-ordinator Clare Ladley said: “The children absolutely loved it. They have their own little scorecard but there is no winner or loser so no pressure on them.”
