CHILDREN at St Mary's Primary School in Royston are feeling a little fitter after this year's Healthy School Week.
The school organised a fun-packed and educational week, with activities including aerobics, pilates, infant yoga, trampolining, and table tennis.
Class teacher Steven Cartwright said: The main idea was to promote three aspects to help build a healthy lifestyle. Exercise, diet and emotional health and wellbeing - or being happy, were central to the week's theme."
To enhance the week, the school ran a fruit tuck shop at breaktimes and a smoothie shop after school.
They raised more than £100, and the money will go towards swimming and play equipment for pupils.
The week also saw youngsters take on extra responsibility, as Year 5 and 6 children volunteered to be play leaders, organising games at lunchtime for the younger ones.
