Commonwealth Games comes to Crabbs Cross

Youngsters at Bright Kids Nursery in Crabbs Cross have been getting sporty to celebrate the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Children have been taking part in activities such as football, hockey, tennis, athletics, obstacle courses and more in a bid to get them active this summer in support of the Games, which kicked off on 23rd July.

During the course of the event they will also be learning about the different countries that make up The Commonwealth by welcoming visitors and taking part in activities such as a Jamaican cookery class, where children will be sampling Jerk chicken and other dishes.

They will also be making flags of the member countries.

The Commonwealth event has been organised by Playworker Kurt Palmer.

Kurt said: “This is a great opportunity to get the children active and encourage team building and confidence building. They are really enjoying learning all about the Games and the different countries that make up The Commonwealth.”
