Early Years & Key Stage 1
The children had a fantastic time in the sun as they took part in our 2016 sports day.
A large crowd of onlookers cheered on the children as they took part in a variety of events, including sprints, javelin, standing jump and hurdles. Everyone competed enthusiastically and often with large smiles on their faces. Ably assisted by our year 6 children, the competitors strived to get as many points as possible for their houses.
In the final tally, Cassiobury scored 519, Stanborough 572 and Gadebridge and Aldenham were neck and neck, tied at 578 points. In an unprecedented move it was decided that there should be a relay to decide an overall victor. By the narrowest of margins, Aldenham won the run off thus securing their house championship status; commiserations to Gadebridge who pushed them so closely!
Key Stage 2 and Overall Winners
In the afternoon, we had our Key Stage 2 events that included: hurdles, discus and standing jump. Great fun was had with our competitive sprint events and the class fun races, which included Year 3 getting rather damp!
Overall, the key stage 2 event was won by Cassiobury with 606 points. Aldenham scored 526, Gadebridge 571 and Stanborough 592.
These scores, and the scores from our recent dodgeball events, were then totalled, giving us overall winners for the Sports Day as a whole. The scoring was tight but Stanborough were triumphant with Gadgebridge a close second.
The whole event was conducted in a manner that was a credit to the children involved and there was a spirit of friendly competition throughout making for a lovely atmosphere that was a joy to be part of.
Well done to our ‘outstanding sportsperson’ winners (pictured with their certificates) and, of course, to all the children for competing with such good spirits. Our thanks also to all parents and spectators who cheered and encouraged heartily from the sidelines.
Finally, a massive thanks to Mrs Ruck and Ms Barnes who did a fantastic job in organising and running the event.
