It's also a good time to socialise with your friends from different classes."
■Katerina Misevska, year 6: "It's a nice change from doing school work. It's good for our fitness. We have lots of things in the canteen that are very healthy, so it's nice to have things that support that."
■Jack Tasker, year 6: "A lot of people in our school play sports. It's fun and it helps you stay fit."
■Caleb Williams, year 6: "Kids can socialise and mingle with other students — and it keeps kids fit."
