A scorching hot Sports Day, on and off the track

A scorching hot Sports Day, on and off the track

The summer heat wave was met by an even greater wave of enthusiasm and spirit by all the Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 children at our annual Sports Day held at Kingsmeadow Athletics Stadium.

Last year’s winners, Ditton House, led the parade to start proceedings which started with the field events, with each child competed in a jumping and throwing event. It was great to see all the children competing hard and remembering to use the technical tips they had been practising in games sessions.

Regular drink and shade breaks were needed to ensure the children were all ready for the high impact track events. Key Stage 2 led the way with the 300m races. Despite the heat, each and every child powered down the final straight, striving for that extra ounce of energy to push through the line. Then followed the Year 1 & Year 2 obstacle races where the children displayed many skills including hockey dribbling, hurdling and balls skills. There was no rest for Key Stage 1 as they then lined up for the 80m sprints. It was delightful to see those little legs and arms working so hard to impress the crowd, many taking the time to spot and wave to their supporters around the 50m mark.

It was time for Key Stage 2 to show their speed with the 100m sprints. Competitive spirit and healthy personal rivalries have certainly kicked in by this age which leads to pulsating races with every metre counting. We ended with the annual relay which was certainly a crowd pleaser.

The eventual winners for the house competition were Dittons, who retained the trophy, but in truth the real winners were every single person at the event.

Special mentions must go to:

Mr Laverty, who made an enthusiastic and accomplished debut on the microphone.

Mr Dowson, who was kind enough not only to turn up to present his trophy to Atticus but to resume his previous roles and hero status.

The staff, for working so hard to ensure the children enjoyed the event and stayed hydrated.

And finally, Mr Mike Harrison at his final Sports Day; it was a fun, competitive, well supported event with all the children giving of their best, and a fitting tribute to all the support and vision he has offered to sport at Weston Green in the last four years.
