Sports Day

Posted on: June 19th 2015

On Friday the 12th of June, excitement filled the air at Queenwood School as Reception to Form 6 took part in the annual Norfolk House Sports day. It was a fun filled day with adults and children taking part in numerous races and showing a great deal of sportsmanship in supporting their friends. What a fantastic atmosphere it was!

The day kicked off with the 400m long distance race. The children showed great resilience and determination to cross the finish line and were cheered on by all the adults and children. The egg and spoon (or potato and spoon) got off to a slow but steady start. The children were careful to keep their potato on their spoon and stay inside their lanes.

Meanwhile Mr Smith, was quick to personally set a Norfolk House record for the furthest long jump with 4.1metres. Eloise in Form 6 challenged Mr Smith’s record with a jump of 3.55 metres. Mrs Cannon, who was overseeing throwing, witnessed some great throwing techniques all of the children.

The parents were delighted to take part in the Space Hopper Race, the three legged race and the most memorable event of the day- the tug of war! Never have I seen such determination between adults to win a race. Despite some injuries, the parents were determined to be the first to cross the finish line and did so with a smile on their faces.

As sports day drew to an end, it was time to announce the winner. It was a narrow result with Wellington taking 1st place by only 1 point.  Well done to the children and adults who made the day a great success and thank you to all our families for joining us on such a lovely day!
