Festival of Sport

Today was our Festival of Sport. It was opened by our award winning dance troupe ( video is in the Summer Term gallery) and then we were off! 


Children took part in a range of activities, earning points for their house as they went. They could also earn points for good sportsmanship, teamwork and helping others. 


Everyone did really well, especially as it was one of the hornets days of the year so far! During each round, a rest break was built in for one team so they could cool down and rehydrate. 


At at the end of the morning, scores were collated and the winning house was....Derby! Congratulations to everyone who took part and Derby for being worthy winners ( I’m in Derby so I’m a little biased!)


Thank you to everyone who came to watch - we hope you enjoyed yourselves and were not too frazzled! Thank you to Mr Kirby, Mr Moran and Mr Wilson for organising and setting up the activities and to the whole staff for running activities and helping the morning run smoothly. Thank you to the PTFA for being on hand to help where needed, and for providing anc distributing drinks and fruit.
