Rainbow Room were invited to take part in some tennis activities at Sunderland Tennis Centre. We went along for the morning and had great fun. We were able to complete many different activities including trying to knock down a target, bat a ball through a hoop and walk while balancing a ball. The children had great fun and tried their best at all the stations.

Sports event

Rainbow Room took part in sports activities at Sunderland Tennis Centre. We were able to try Boccia, Tennis, New age Kurling and Volleyball. We had a great day. We are now waiting to hear who has made it through to represent Sunderland in the Tyne & Wear final. Fingers crossed!

Seaside Visit

As part of our topic on the seaside, Rainbow Room visited Roker Beach. At the beach we made sandcastles, searched for shells and sea glass. We were also able to have an ice cream at the end. We all had a lovely morning and the weather managed to stay dry! At school we are now writing a recount about our visit and we are also going to create a poster to remind people to keep our beaches clean. We can’t wait to share these with you.
