You could sense the anticipation in the air for the Year 3 pupils’ first Sports Day in the Junior School! However all nerves vanished as soon as the first whistle blew for the start of the day. Jack Yates said, “I loved it, as we got to do lots of different activities”

The children performed well and were so enthusiastic and excited about the day. Mr Holness was pleased to say that he witnessed some great sportsmanship and said, “I was amazed by the effort and attitude of all the Year 3 students”.

The placing’s were:

The Year 4 pupils were keen to build on their experiences from last year and were looking forward to their last Sports Day in the current format. As next year they will be competing against each other in individual events. Mr Holness was amazed with some of the running, jumping and throwing from these students and said, “Every pupil was brilliant”.  Again, the attitude and commitment from all teams was outstanding. Alex Kingston described the day as, “Fun, awesome and tiring”

1st Kestrel 1226
