Alfie and Lucy: July 2016
On the 5th July 2016, all the classes in our school took part in sports day. We had a range of different races, such as; sprint, egg and spoon, skipping, obstacle course, javelin, long distance and KS1 also did a bean bag race. We also had a nice treat, having preschool coming over and doing a 50m sprint. Luckily, the sun shone and the afternoon stayed relatively warm.
The blue team had an outstanding win, with 171 points! With it being so close, the people counting the points depended on the final races to discover the winner. The other coloured teams were not far behind. With yellows coming in second with 159 points, Green with 114 points and finally red with 111 points. Every team tried their best and did very well.
The blue team ran a final lap, proudly holding the trophy above them. Everyone was cheering and clapping. We had a wonderful time!
A very big thank you to the year sixes, who helped setting up the races. The parents were also very supportive of their children and others, and also a big thank you to them for coming to watch our sport event. We also thank the staff for organising this exciting event and the children who took part in everything.
