Colsterworth hosted a Sports extravaganza today wowing the crowds of parents and carers with our enthusiasm and energy.
The day began with our wonderful year 6 sports ambassadors leading the whole school out on to the field to the applause of our waiting crowd. After an opening ceremony led by the high flying antics of the school’s cheerleading squad the children joined their house teams to take part in a fast paced circuit of sporting activities. With fantastic cheers from our parents and carers, the children dribbled hockey balls, squeezed through hoola hoops and sprung forwards in the standing long jump.
After a refresh at lunch time, the children returned to the field to show off their competitive edge in the individual races. As the bunting flapped in the breeze, the parents and carers returned in force to enjoy the gorgeous sunny weather while cheering all of our children on. Each child worked their hardest to speed along in both a novelty race and a flat sprint while the other children showed great sportsmanship in willing them on. After egg & spoon races, speedy sprints and a very close called relay, the children proudly wore their ribbons to hear the results of the day’s events. At the end of the day, once our cheerleading squad had the opportunity to wave their pom-poms once more, Witham house were announced the team winners!
All in all the day was an amazing, sunny, energetic and honking success. With a combination of fantastic parent & carer support, wonderful hardworking staff and most of all energetic, happy children we had our best Sports Day to date!
