Pupils at Ketton Primary School take part in activity challenge




Children jumped at the chance to try new sports in a month-long event encouraging them to be more active.

Rock climbing, trampolining, laser tag, rugby, swimming and even llama-walking were among fun pursuits undertaken by 52 children from Ketton Primary School.

The challenge was arranged by the Parents and Teachers Association, with youngsters recording their activities to see who could complete the most minutes.

Together they clocked up 111,400 minutes of activity - the equivalent of 77 days - and raised £1,900 to support the school.

Headteacher Glenn Fraser said: “Given the covid restrictions, this has been a fantastic event that allowed the whole school take part. A huge thank you to our PTA for organising it for the children."

The challenge came complete with prizes too - Rutland Swim Academy donated a week's intensive swimming lessons won by Sam in Year 2, while classmate Alfred won Usborne Books donated by Sarah's Unique Library.

The overall winner was Hugo in Year 4 who logged 6,900 minutes of activity and won the star prize of a Fitbit, donated by Equilibrium Ketton.

Will in Year 4 took home a place Ketton Tennis Club's summer camp, Helena (Y5), Emma (Y4), Imogen (Y2) and James (Y1) all won netballs and a term of lessons from Stamford and Rutland Netball Club, Jack (Y1) won a croquet set donated by a parent, and the PTA provided goody bags for the child in each class who did the most activity.
