What a wonderful morning we had in school and Pre-School on Friday. We started with Pre-school sports day which was very well attended by many parents and grandparents. All the children had fun running, jumping, kicking and throwing and their sports day finished with the children running under the solar panels. The parents' race was a hotly contested event — a mums against dads race. Balls were meant to be passed over heads and through legs and I think there is still an on-going steward’s enquiry! Thank you to all the parents who supported this most enjoyable event.
The rest of the school then came out onto the field for their sports day. The four house teams were all divided into three sub teams and they all went around the field competing in different events using their PE skills. The morning culminated in races which all children were involved in. We also had parents, staff and toddler races. I was very impressed with all the children as I saw and heard some fantastic, encouraging support from the children to one another. Well done to all our sporty Slinfold children! As you can see from the photograph Griffin House came first with 4178 points, Dragon were second with 4027 points, Phoenix were third with 3910 points and in fourth were Sphinx with 3711 points. Thank you to the parents, grandparents and friends who supported the children on Friday and stayed for the picnic on the field afterwards. It was a glorious morning and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. Thank you to the PTA for the providing the ice lollies which were very popular!
