Our School Sports day was a wonderful fun afternoon of friendship and healthy competition mixed with delight at each other’s success. A true reflection of the school – determination and celebration.
The House Captains were awarding certificates for the Sporting values of determination, teamwork, passion, respect, honesty and self belief – these are now household words because they are the sporting values we focus on during all our tournaments through the Sports Partnership and in the Cluster.
We began with individual challenges such as javelin, chest throwing and speed bounce. After a rest and drink it was time for the spring races which are always competitive. The relay is a real favourite and gives the houses a chance to work as a team. We finished with Time ball – a local traditional game for the older pupils.
What was the highpoint of the afternoon? The encouraging atmosphere – everyone was able to take part and some of the older pupils took the hands of and lead the younger ones through the activities. A big thanks to all the families for joining us and making new faces feel welcome too! A special thanks to Mrs Gaywood who runs the event with such enthusiasm and passion for sport.
