Year 4 and Year 5 pupils from James Knott Primary took part in a fantastic opportunity with HoopStarz at Blyth Sports Centre last week. The children were taught how to hula-hoop, they were then gradually given harder challenges to complete while hula hooping such as hopping, jumping, 360 turns and sweeping.

Pupils also took part in group challenges using hoops to create a small nest/home. They then had to weave in and out without breaking their construction.

The children had a fantastic time and are looking forward to showing off these new techniques and tricks back at school and at home.

See the children in action!
