Sports Day Fun

I am so pleased that the weather held off on Sports Day. Thank you to everyone who came along to cheer our teams on. The children had a fabulous morning taking part and supporting their teams. It was lovely to hear all the positive comments from parents, carers and other family members who got into the team spirit. The winners of this year’s sports day were Blue team, Red team came second, white team were third, Yellow and purple teams shared fourth place and green team came 5th. We celebrated each team’s efforts and enthusiasm in today’s assembly. Well done to all the children in each and every team. You are amazing children!
