Sports' Day 2018
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
I think you will agree that this year’s Sports Day was a huge success. It gave the children the opportunity to showcase some of the skills they have learnt in P.E with Mr Spurrier, such as: standing long jump, football and netball skills, an army assault course and sprinting to name just a few. The children came into school excitedly wearing their team colours and worked together to earn team points throughout the day. The morning consisted of a variety of activities, such as football relays and bean bag target throws that the children completed in their house teams. The supportive cheering must have been heard across the valley during the afternoon, as the children competed in sprints, relays, obstacle races and egg and spoon races.
The overall winning house of the day was the Blue House, however all houses should be proud of their efforts, both in sporting and also in the support and encouragement that they showed for each other.
Many of the children commented that "this was the best Sports' Day ever". This day was made extra special by the fantastic turn out from the parents and the wonderful Summer Sizzler that followed.
Thank you to all those who supported and to Mr White for the beautiful photos.
