Sports Days 2008

Key Stage 2 Primary Sports Days 2008


Last week saw our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children taking on the challenges of their year group Sports Days in the Primary School where they competed for their class over a long and exciting morning of athletic activities. Our young athletes certainly rose to the challenge and excellent performances were produced across the age ranges.


Our sports mornings are split into two sections with an athletics circuit of 9 sporting activities and 3 water/rest stations including various running, throwing and jumping age appropriate events.

For each event the children can achieve a performance level which gives them a score of 1 to 4 so that each child is always adding to their class team total. As the children rotate through the various activities the supporters follow them cheering and supporting each of the children’s performances.


The other part of the morning consists of the more traditional sports day style events of individual and relay races on the track. Classes had previously selected and distributed events between the children with the help of their P.E. teacher and again everybody who took part gained valuable points for their class team. Events ranged from the 60m sprints to age appropriate middle distance races as well as a wide range of fun individual and relay races. Who could not enjoy participating in or watching events such as the sack race, three legged race (complete with comedy tumbles), football kit relay, obstacle relay race (with the introduction of space hoppers this year) and many more.


For the Year 3s and 4s, Sport Day was concluded by the ever popular shuttle relay while the Year 5s and 6s progressed onto the more challenging 4x 50m relay events.


With only the final scores to be calculated for the children the attention turned to parents and supports who wished to show the children what good sports they were by entering into the spirit of the day in the adults race. Excellent races all around with some Year groups sticking to the traditional sprints while others opted for the fun sack or even space hopper race.


Congratulations to all of the children who performed so well during the week and to the four winning classes this year of:-


Year 3             =          3W

Year 4             =          4P

Year 5             =          5G

Year 6             =          6G


Our Sports Days at Patana are designed to do more than celebrate the champion and I would like to think that every child who participated in their Sports Day enjoyed their experience and had many opportunities to succeed.


Thank you once again to all of the participants, P.E./Swimming Teams, Class Teachers, ground staff, maids and for the tremendous support from our parents which ensured another successful set of Sports Days in the Primary School.


See you at the Key Stage 2 Swimming Galas during the week beginning Monday 12th January!


Not too much Christmas cake over the holidays children.


Mr. Andrew Tatam

Head of Primary Physical Education
