Our Sports Days were enjoyed across the federation, and it was a special moment as we opened our doors following 2 years of social distancing. Thank you to all our families and friends who took the time to support our events and cheer on the children - it was lovely to see you all. It was an ambitious move to host the event over two days, but it was an opportunity to trial something a little different, allowing us to refine and improve the sports day offer for next year.
A clear message from our children in KS2 was that they enjoyed competing against children of the same age, particularly when some year groups have a cohort of 5 pupils or less. The children in KS2 were also excited to meet new friends across the federation, some of whom they had seen at Robinwood recently. We will be offering more opportunities for the children to meet up and learn as we move through the year.
A huge thank you to Mrs Hall who organised and hosted the events. Each child got to take part in a running race and the Year 3 to Year 6 children had an obstacle race , which included hurdles, egg and spoon racing and going through hoops. The children in Nursery to Year 2 took part in an egg and spoon race, it was revealed after the event that the smaller children may have had some help with a little bit of blu-tack! A special mention goes to Eli from Year 6 at Chapel Haddlesey who went above and beyond to help Mrs Hall run both Sports Days.
