CHILDREN from Spring Grove Junior, Infant and Nursery School enjoyed getting active as part of a fitness scheme at Huddersfield University.

The Adopt a School programme was organised by the university's sports and fitness department in conjunction with the Youth Sport Trust and the Fitness Industry Association.

It aimed to encourage year five children to become more active by providing a six-week programme of exercise combined with lessons on the importance of staying fit.

A finale was held for children featuring relay races, parachute games, rounders and other games.

Sports coaching students Tom Kaye and Chris Clark led the course.
