CHILDREN tried any sport they could think of in a week of activities.

Sessions were help at Copthill School near Uffington every morning this week by Activ8.

About 30 youngsters turned up each day to try their hand at a range of sporting activities, from tiddlywinks to American football.

Organiser Deborah Brice said: “Everyone is really good at one sport, they just need to find out what it is.

“The children have been giving everything a go.

“Rocket ball and dodgeball have proved very popular.

“We do lots of topical sports, like Olympic events, and teach the children some background and well.

“We can even teach things like skiing. The children have been having lots of fun.”
