  • Short Summary

    Thousands of children do exercises on a huge sports ground in Sunderland.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Lessons they enjoy! - Thousands of schoolchildren take part in massed physical training."

    Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.

    L/S shows several teams of children marching onto a huge sports ground - there are thousands of them! They do knee bending exercises in unison, then each team forms the letter 'H', then all rearrange to form the letter 'E' (unfortunately, we do not get to see just what they were spelling out - "Help!" maybe?). The children all march off the pitch; they don't seem to be in any special order or formation, just in their groups.
