The Year 3 and 4 Sports Days took place on Monday 17 November at the Saar campus. The athletes were in fine form and battled their way over obstacle courses, threw javelins and raced over 75m trying to become the next Usain Bolt.

They worked with their peers in teams of 5 or 6 and the sportsmanship and effort on display was immense.

“I loved the long jump because I kept scoring maximum points for my team” Faisal Kanoo Year 4

“It was really cool and energetic’ Lilly Bull Year 4

The results were:

Year 3 – 1st Falcon, 2nd Kestrel, 3rd Osprey, 4th Merlin

Year 4 – 1st Falcon, 2nd Kestrel, 3rd Merlin, 4th Osprey

After many months of training within PE lessons the Year 5 and 6 Sports Day finally arrived on Wednesday 19 November.
