SCHOOLBOYS were joined by their dads for a fun morning playing sport and reading.
Pupils from Copnor Infant School and Copnor Junior School in Portsmouth spent Saturday morning playing football, rugby and basketball for a boys-only event.
Organised by the school every year, the two-hour session gives youngsters the chance to bond with their dads.
Dad Tom Milner, from Copnor, went along with his sons Harry, eight, and Charlie, five.
Tom said: ‘It was the second time I have been here with Harry and the first with Charlie.
‘I think it is a great idea for the school to do and it is a good event.
‘It gives us the chance to play different sports because there was such a variety but it also encourages reading which is important.’
Teachers from the school helped out with the sports which included a penalty shoot-out, throwing a foam javelin, throwing a rugby ball through a hoop and playing basketball.
The results of how well they did were recorded on a score-sheet.
Then, the boys and their dads went into the library to read their favourite books.
Michael Bedford and his son Jude enjoyed throwing the rugby ball and the javelin.
Year 2 pupil Jude, aged six, said he liked the javelin best.
‘The morning was fun and my favourite was the javelin,’ he said.
But I liked the reading too.’
Michael added: ‘This is the first year we did the event and it was good.
‘We really enjoyed it and there was a good variety of things to do.’
