PLAYFUL elephants enjoyed a kick-about as part of Whipsnade’s sporting extravaganza.

The giant zoo residents were given pilates balls and a giant football to knock about to mark the start of the Shaun the Sheep Championsheeps – taking place at the zoo until Sunday.

The zoo has been transformed into a farmyard for the whole family to enjoy this half term. Games include Flock ‘n’ Roll where Shirley, a giant blow up sheep, is rolled around an obstacle course. Other games, featuring popular Shaun the Sheep characters, include Shirley’s Piathon, Cabbage Keepie Uppie, Naughty Pigs Sack Race and Get Fit with the Flock – a mass participation session of hula hooping, aerobics and line dancing.
