Fortunately, the unpredictable June weather was kind to us and we were able to run all three events throughout the day.

The inaugural Babies and Toddlers activities started the day with enthusiasm from the children and adults, involving a variety of physical skills and fun. The children received certificates for their keen participation and the Year 5 pupils ably assisted Mr Blisset in running this event smoothly.

This was swiftly followed by the Early Years Sports Day for the Reception and Pre-Reception children, where the children avidly and wholeheartedly competed in a carousel of eight different physical challenges. On this occasion, Mrs Stupple organised this and had the Year 6 students running the activities with energy and yet encouraging kindness and warmth to the younger children.

The last event of the day was the Senior Sports Day involving children from Years 1 - 6 running races on the track, including the sprint final, hurdles and the perennial favourites of events like the egg and spoon, sack and three-legged. The afternoon was split into age groups to allow for social distancing and for a limited number of parents to attend, we appreciated their understanding and assistance which allowed the day to go ahead. Each age group event culminated with a House Shuttle Relay with enthusiastic and competitive baton changeovers, in order to finish the race with a speedy flourish.

The Year 6 pupils again ably assisted with the organisation to allow it to run seamlessly. It was fantastic to see all of the children from the babies through to the eldest participating in a whole school event and to see how well Year 6 rose to the responsibility of the day.

Many thanks to all the staff who assisted both before and during the day.
