After School Clubs Summer 2018 

Sports Event April 2018

On Wednesday 18th April, Rainbow room were lucky enough to take part in another sports event at Sunderland Tennis Centre. This time we were able to try lots of different activities including yoga, fencing, tag rugby, tennis and golf. The children were exceptionally behaved during the whole morning and took part in all activities. We were super relaxed after yoga and completed moves including a ‘fish’ and ‘palm tree’. We think we might try some more of these back in school! It was also brilliant to try some other new sports including fencing which meant we needed to wear all of the correct equipment. It felt hot inside the suits!
