Sports Day

On Friday the 7th of July our annual Sports Day took place in Clissold Park, with EYFS and KS1 events in the morning and KS2 in the afternoon.

The sun shone brightly as the children gathered for an energetic warmup at the park. Thank you to Matilda’s Mum for leading the warmup, which left children in high spirits to start the carousel of activities. The children demonstrated co-ordination, skill and great teamwork to complete the activities.

The temperature rose as KS2 assembled at the park. The excitement grew throughout the heats at the activities. There was great encouragement and praise from all children in their teams, as they cheered each other on.

The school values were demonstrated throughout the day as the children showed respect for each other’s abilities, with a positive attitude  towards the activities and celebrated their achievements.
