Sports Day 2017

7th July 2017
On one of the hottest days of the year so far we had our Sports Day.  Gathering the children in the shade they were put into teams and then we were off!
 
A round robin of events started and there was Football Dribble and Shoot, Under and Over, Skip and Jump and Overhead Throw, each enabling the teams to score points for either Swallows or Swifts.
 
After a quick refreshment break we moved on to the Novelty races, the children all taking part in egg and spoon, obstacle, sack and newspaper races.
 
The afternoon finished with the flat races then the long distance for each age group.
 
The children entered into the spirit and gave it their all.
 
Mr Avey kept the spectators up to date with the scores as we went on and the Swifts were just keeping ahead of the Swallows.
 
The Swallows tried to close the gap but the Swifts went on to claim the trophy.  Well done Swifts.
