Families from across Harrogate got the chance to try a wide range of activities as part of the active families day at Rossett School.

From cooking and wall climbing, to tackling obstacle courses and creating animated films, the one-day event aimed to help families find new activities to enjoy together.

It takes place every year and is aimed at children in years 4 to 7 and their parents and siblings.

Organiser Malcolm Howe said: “It can be hard to find activities which suit all the family, especially as the children approach secondary school age and their interests can change dramatically. Active families helps them to sample a huge range of different activities in one day without committing to a long course or investing in expensive equipment.

“We hope we have given families a chance to spend some time together and perhaps even find a new hobby which they can enjoy together for years to come.”

Other activities included circus skills, making ‘goo’ in the science labs, music production, creating adverts using iPads and making fire using bushcraft skills.
