A school for pupils with special needs enjoyed a wheelchair dance lesson as part of a national sports week.

Pupils from Woodlands School in Edgware took part in National School Sport Week, which aims to get schools across the country commit to a full week to sporting events.

At the school in Bransgrove Road children enjoyed their own mini Commonwealth Games getting pupils to try five new sports throughout the week.

Today, pupils were treated to a wheelchair dancing lesson, and were joined by children from neighbouring school Camrose Primary.

Teacher Lisa Jeffery said: “The dancing today has been fantastic and all the children really enjoyed themselves.

“The whole week has been really good for all the children and it has been a great chance for them to try out new sports they wouldn’t normally get the chance to do.

“For our children being active is really important because it keeps them healthy and also burns off any excess energy they may have.”

Other sports children at Woodlands have taken part in include athletics, gymnastics at Harrow School for Gymnastics, a swimming gala, tug of war, ballet, boccia, kurling and wheelchair dancing.
