Sports Day

Can you believe that the school year is almost over? That can mean only one thing... Grey skies, rain, disgruntled classroom assistants laying out PE cones on a cold and muddy field - yes, it's time for Key Stage 1 Sports Day!

Hopes were not high at lunch time as slate grey clouds hung ominously above, shortly after which spirits were further dampened (literally and metaphorically) by the rain drops that began to cascade from the sky. Luckily, the clouds began to part and one or two weak rays of sunlight peered gingerly through the clouds before the afternoon developed into an overcast and cool one. What we lacked in sunshine, we made up for in fun and enthusiasm!


Highlights included:


  • Javelin
  • Relay races
  • Penalty shoot out
  • Space hopper races
  • Ladder runs
  • Bean bag throw
  • Sack race
  • Hurdles
  • Juice and biscuits!
  • Did I mention the space hoppers?! smiley


The children worked really hard to do their very best in each and every event, and we were very impressed by their efforts. A great day was had by all!
