Sports Day

What an exciting afternoon! This year our sports day had an Olympics twist to it. We began with our own opening ceremony, with each of the five teams (one more than normal to match the Olympic ring colours) parading around the playground and performing their songs and pom-pom routines. Each team had prepared a flag to represent their discipline and they looked fantastic as the children held them aloft.

The parade was followed by a rotation of ten activities, with some old favourites plus some new challenges such as archery and badminton!

The afternoon was finished off with the track events: sack race, egg and spoon race, skipping race and sprints, and the final traditional team relay while the points were added up.

In the end, the red team took the trophy, but everyone had a great time and tried their hardest.

A very big thank you to Mrs Barker for all her hard work in organising today. Super job!

You can find all of the photos below.


  1. Well done Mrs Barker for yet another fantastic sports day. Absolutely loved the parade. I feel all the children were winners for their full participation in the events. Such an enjoyable afternoon. Thank you.

    Wow - what fantastic photos!!! They really show what sportsday is all about just by looking at the facial expressions. I've seen laughter, determination, gritted teeth, tongues sticking out (not rudely!), concentration, team spirit, hard work, people on the ground, people off the ground, and above all happy children. It makes it all worth while. Well done everyone - a super afternoon, and you certainly kept the scorer busy with all the adding up of points! Many thanks also to the band of helpers without whom it wouldn't be possible to run the day in this fashion.
