Willerby Carr Lane - Play Leaders

If you had told me in on week one that I was going to teach the full class I wouldn't have been able to do it. I have got better and I am more confident to teach games to the others now.

Our Lady St Peter's - Healthy Lifestyles

It was all fun. I enjoyed all of it. I didn't know what carbohydrates were but now I do. I really like the games. I think the BootCamp was my favourite part.
