Sports Day Round Up

It all began with our incredibly creative opening ceremony. Each country (that the children have been learning about over the past 3 weeks) presented to the wonderful audience of parents and relatives with a dance to a chosen song, before the after school dance club took over and delivered, yet again, another amazing 2 dances. The ceremony was finished off with the whole school singing 'Roar' - we were all inspired!

The afternoon was excellent with the children showing great team work with the different sporting challenges both on the field and track. The results were as follows:

1st - Portugal
2nd - Greece
3rd - Argentina

The annual finals of the sprint races were a thriller to say the least!

This saw the fastest 8 boys and girls from each year group take part in a 40 metre sprint race. The top 2 from each year group then raced again to find the fastest male and fastest female in the school

This year, I am proud to announce that the fastest girl was Amy Aston in Year 6. She showed great speed and determination to see off all the other girls she competed against. What a great way to complete her time at Leys.

This year's fastest boy was Euan Brailsford in Year 5 - for the second year running. He did not only manage to beat all the other boys of his year group, but all the boys in the year above him as well. I have a feeling that we may have a little sprint star in the making here. What exciting prospects we have for the following two years. Usain Bolt, you better watch your back!
