We had such a wonderful time at our Athletics’ Day on Wednesday.
We were so excited when the bus arrived and on arriving at Newtown Park we were put into groups. We had some of the older children from Rms 3 and 4 in our groups too.
We watched the Year 2 children doing sprints and then we went off to our different activities. There were six activities:
- The Sack Race
- The Egg and Spoon Race
- Three Legged Race
- Vortex Throwing
- Underarm Throw
- Lilly Pad Leap
We spent fifteen minutes at each event and half way through we stopped for lunch. The weather was so beautiful and we all had sunscreen and hats on to protect us.
Here are some extracts from the stories the children wrote the following day.
“I threw the vortex off and it went just like a rocket. Mine hit Wendy and she laughed.”
“Ready! Steady! Go! I was in the lead. My friend and I fell down so I didn’t win.”
“My favourite thing was the sack race because there was lots of jumping.”
“Yeah we’re off to Athletics” We were the first to arrive at the park. We did the sack race and on the practice, I won but on the real sack race I lost.
As you can see from the photos we had so much fun and next year, when we do these events again, we are sure we will be much better at them.
