A healthy lifestyles day was a knock out at a Wisbech primary school when they held a day of funky sports and fun to encourage children to keep active.
Kick boxing champ Steven Cook was there along with street dance, gymnastics, Doody circus skills, archery, rowing and karate.
There were healthy eating classes, rounders, netball skills and athletics.
Head Teacher Nicola Parker said: “ I could feel the buzz about the day before we even opened the doors.
“The day ran like a well oiled machine, with a relaxed atmosphere which supported efficiency and maximised learning.
