Sports Day with a Difference!

After last year's KS2 Sports Day, when we felt that we did not have enough opportunity for children's participation, we changed the format this year and began the athletics work for Sports Day at the beginning of term, with some consultant training to start us off, and then a serious attempt for all children to achieve a personal best before Sports Day, so they could use the day itself to improve on it. Teams won points if a child had improved on their personal best. The weather was good, plenty of parents arrived and we had a really smoothly running first go at this for the Middle Learning Phase (Y2-4). Well done to Mrs Taylor and Miss Ratcliffe who organised it, and the host of Y5 children who enabled it to work effectively by acting as recorders, measurers and organisers.
