Sports Activity Day - Mon 13th August

Fifteen children spent the day at the cricket pitch taking part in individual and group sports.



They didn't stop all day, even when we had some showers! Everyone went home with their own medal at the end of a competitive, but very good natured event.

The day started with a warm-up, led by keen 12 year old footballer  Harry (Sharron's nephew), sharing his experience from local club training. Then, with teams chosen, a mini-football tournament.

In good English tradition ended in penalties to sort placings for the children to put their stickers on the chart which would decide which medal they went home with!

We had lots of different races in different age categories - including sprints, obstacle races, egg and spoon and relays.

There were more team games including rounders, where we discovered some really big hitters! and tug of war, in which some of the adults became quite competitive!





We also did some welly wanging - with very varied techniques employed and lots of free time to revisit favourite activities and make good use of all of the sports equipment!

I don't know about the children, but I was certainly exhausted by the end of the day!
