Sports Day 2017

Sports Day 2017

We had our sports day on June 14th and what a day it was! What a beautifully warm day in summer it was - the perfect day for our sports day. All classes took part in a fun mixture of games and races. 

They had great fun taking part in the Sack Race. To do this they had to "wear" a sack and then hop to the finishing line as quick as they could.

They then took part in a Sprint where they had to run their fastest from one side of the field to the other. The children were extremely quick - it must be all that healthy food they have been eating this year!

Next was the Tug of War. Two teams positioned themselves either side of the thick rope and pulled and pulled. It was a tense tug as both sides gave it all they could. The children were so strong!

Another exciting race was the Hurdles. The children had to run and jump over each hurdle. It was even trickier because the hurdles were different sizes so they had to really concentrate. 

Here are the children jumping over the hurdles.

There was also the Obstacle Course. The children had to do various activities to complete this course. First they had to hop from one cone to another. Then they had to tippy toe quickly through a rope ladder. Next they had to pick up a bean bag and aim correctly to throw it into a hoop. Then they had to take their bean bag and crawl under a row of chairs. Lastly they had to race back to the starting line where the next person would go.

At the end of the day the children relaxed outside and enjoyed a cool ice-pop. The winners of all the races and games were presented with a certificate of achievement and a prize. 

They had such an amazing day this year at the sports day. The children should be very proud of themselves as were super fit. All the work they have been doing this year to secure our Active Flag has been paying off.

Well done everyone for all your hard work at the sports day!!
