Sainsbury's School Games Festival 2016

On 19th July 2016 we held our second School Games festival.

The event started with an opening ceremony and then progressed onto a carousel of sporting events which all the children, from Reception to Y4, could participate in. The children were all competing in their teams (red, white and blue). Scores were taken from each event and added together to get an overall winning team. 

The stations in the carousel were: ten pin bowling, tri golf (both chipping and putting), an assault course, tennis ball throw, standing long jump, foot golf and a rest station.

The children in Y5 planned and organised the event to develop their leadership skills. They did an excellent job and should feel very proud of themselves.

This year we had an Olympic theme. Each child made a Brazilian flag, which they all waved in the opening ceremony. Also, all the children took part in a Samba dance in the opening ceremony.

All the children thoroughly enjoyed participating and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship, encouraging others. 

The red team were the overall winners for the second year. The Y5 team leaders were presented with the trophy in the end of year assembly. Well done to all who participated!
