What a wonderful few days of Sport and fun in the sunshine! We were delighted to be able to run a live programme at school. Although not following the same format as most years, it was fabulous to see an uplifting crowd and parental support, the pupils embraced the opportunity, producing some outstanding performances across the different disciplines.
In Years 3-6, all Houses took part in an athletics sports day programme, running in either sprinting or distance events, javelin or ball throw and long jump or high jump competing against their own age group for overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions. House pride was high and our excited pupils paraded onto the field proudly waving their House flags. The day started off grey, but the conditions began to slowly improve and the sun came out and complemented some great efforts.
As the programme of sports progressed, so did the tension. The stakes were high and the desire to win was palpable. After what felt like weeks of waiting, Sports Day was rapidly drawing to a close. There was laughter, there were tears, records were broken and there was a lot of running, but, in the end, Sports Day 2021 will be remembered as a year of tense competition, exemplary sporting endeavours and glorious weather.
