Our pupil pods enjoyed taking part in Random Routines. What I thought would be a two minute activity took all break time as they wanted to play again and again.

All our pupils have their own skipping rope and tennis ball and are taking part in St Mark's Super Skills every day.

Why not try the Tokyo Ten Random Routines yourself!
