The Heat is on …
Years 3 and 4 Sports Day

Glorious sunshine turned up to attend the rearranged Sports Day alongside the whole year groups of excited Years 3 and 4 pupils. Each house was represented by six teams who rotated around each station to try their hands, and feet, at specific athletics skills. Every competitor’s jump, throw, run, race, obstacle, hurdle and crawl scored points for their house. It was really pleasing to see the high levels of sportsmanship and support exhibited by each child for their teammates, as they in turn were cheered on by parents, teachers and staff.

Big thanks must go to all the people who were involved in organising, setting up, officiating and running events, including the teachers, teaching assistants, support staff and the PE Department. Special thanks to all the house captains who led their teams with responsibility and enthusiasm. As in every contest, there must be winners and losers and after all the points that were accumulated were totalled, the events finished with Osprey victorious in Year 3 and Falcon as Year 4 Champions. Well done to every child who participated and gave their all.
