  • EYFS Sports Day

    Published 18/06/18

    After a cloudy start, the sun came out and smiled upon us as today was the EYFS sports day.

    The children started with a round robin of activities including football dribbling, bean bag throwing, jumping through hoops and catching a ball.

    The  children then concluded the session with 3 different races. The sprint, the hurdles (both under and over them) and finally the quoit race.

    Every single child did their best and they were all awarded a medal.

    Thank you to all the parents that came and supported the event including the RSA with the refreshment stall. A special mention to Mr Downie and Mr Moran for organising the event. Everyone loved it!
