We were so lucky with the weather on Wednesday, when we held our KS2 Sports Day. It was the first sports day that we have been able to hold with mixed classes and invite parents to for quite some time. It was lovely to all be all back together celebrating all the great PE and sport that the children do.
We had a Commonwealth Games theme this year with the games starting soon in Birmingham. Children worked in mixed age Commonwealth countries teams.
We started with exciting relay races in which all children took part. The children then moved round eight events, including archery, javelin, standing triple jump and shuttle run. It was lovely to see children encourage each other and cheer each other on to perform to the best of their ability and parents were great at cheering and clapping too!
At the end of the morning, we ran 400m races and children could choose to take part to gain more points for their team. It was incredible to see almost every pupil choosing to run and give it their all.
Please see the newsletter for individual winners in the races and top scoring boys and girls from each year group.
After all the points were calculated for each team the overall winners for sports day were: 3rd Wales, 2nd Australia and congratulations to 1st place team India.
Well done to everyone, it was so lovely to be able to finish our year with such a lovely sports day. We would also like to say a big thank you to the Marches Young Leaders Who came to help us with the events and were absolutely brilliant! We couldn’t have done it without them.
This year we held class Sports Days due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place. After making a competition pledge the Wrens, Puffins and Hawks took part in a range of athletic activities including speed bounce, ball throw, javelin, speed bounce, sprinting and archery.
All of the children worked their hardest to achieve their very best scores in all events.
At the end of the morning boys and girls positions for each year group were announced and stickers awarded. It was lovely to celebrate our children's sporty talents.

2019 Key Stage Two School Games Sports Day
Congratulations to all the children for competing so well at our School Games Sports Day. During the morning the children all took part in relays, ball throw, javelin, archery, standing long jump, vertical jump, standing triple jump, shuttle run , speed bounce and finally had the opportunity to run 400m. They were awarded points for all of their times, jumps and throws and a team average was calculated at the end of the morning.
Each team was given the name of one of the School Games Values- Respect, Determination, Honesty, Team Work, Passion and Self Belief and our own values Enjoyment and Celebration.
This year, in 3rd place, was Team Enjoyment, 2nd Team Celebration and in 1st place was Team Honesty. Well done to Daniel, Esmee, Betsy, Zara, Mackenzie, Iwan, David, Ella and Lottie.
Each year we also say a big well done to the top scoring boy and girl from each year group. In our sports awards assembly on Friday we announced our champions, who this year were: Jonah 433, Grace 295, Jack 399, Dulcie 340, Joe 274, Lily 243, Alfie 234 and Ella 287 Amazing scores- well done to you all. Each year we also look to see if any school records have been broken (our record go back as far as 1993 in some cases). This year we did have some record breakers and equalisers. Jack set the new Year 5 boy speed bounce record at 42 jumps in 15 seconds. He now holds the Year 3,4 and 5 record and we are sure he will have his sights set on the Year Six record next year! Ella set a new Year 3 girls record with 39 jumps in 15 seconds Sion set a new Year 3 boys javelin record - 11 meters Dulcie equalled the Year 5 girls 400 metre record In archery we had a number of new records set- Ginny and Selma now have the Year 4 girls with a score of 16, Hayden the Y5 boys with 16 and Betsy the Year 5 girls with 36 points- which is now the current school record as well. Big congratulations! We would also like to say a huge thank you to The Marches School Sports Leaders for all of their fantastic support at our School Games Sports Day this year and to all the parents who came to support and cheer on the children. What a great Sports Day!
