Run, Jump, Throw and have Fun!
The Year 3 and 4 Sports Days were held recently and gave the children the chance to show off their athletic skills they had been learning in their PE lessons. The high jump was introduced this year with many of the competitors using scissor kicks to get over the bar, some even using the Fosbury flop!
The weather was perfect and the children did themselves proud with their performances. We have our eyes on a few for future BSME Games candidates.
We would like to say a massive thank you to the Year 6 helpers who were tremendously supportive and did a superb job!

Trying to guess the right day for the Sports Days nearly 6 months in advance is always tricky due to the unpredictable nature of the weather in Bahrain. Luckily, we got it right for the Year 5 and Year 6 Sports Days as well, and we enjoyed a sunny, hot day!
The students have been working really hard for 2 months in their lessons trying to make sure they did their best in their specific events. We are pleased to say many records were broken, even some that had been standing since 2007!
