This is the first year that this event has been held and what a success it was!

The pupils had the opportunity to experience what life was like for children growing up in the 80s and 90s - they played board games such as Twister, Battleships, Hungry Hippos, Screwball Scramble and Operation, to name but a few; played playground games such as bouncing on space hoppers and hopping about in hopscotch; they watched old films and children's programmes; made their own movie animations inspired by Trapdoor; made hand-held puppets and puppet shows inspired by Button Moon; filmed their own music videos; took part in an 80s Jane Fonda workout; danced to 80s and 90s music and much more!

We would like to thank all parents and pupils for supporting the event. Throughout the entire 24 hours all pupils were an absolute credit to us and Poltair School.

When we have received all sponsor forms and money we will inform you of the amount raised as deadline for collection is today!
