Woodlea Sport's Day

Woodlea Sports Day – Monday 6th July 2015
The sun was shining, the equipment all set up, the children, parents and staff all ready to start …
There were 22 activities set up, ranging from ‘Tin Can Alley’, ‘Hockey Dribbling’, ‘Netball Shooting’ to the more traditional ‘Obstacle Race’ and ‘Sprints’.
Giving the children the responsibility in choosing the order in which they could complete the activities and also who they wanted to go round with, proved a success.  The children had just over an hour to complete as many of the activities as possible. At each event there was an adult who awarded points or placings – depending on the activity completed.
The morning culminated with sprint races for boys and girls for the uppers and lowers and an ‘Egg and Spoon Race’ with REAL eggs!
For those relatives brave enough, they were invited to take part in an adult sprint race, which the children loved. The teachers too were invited to take part in a race, supported by all the children in school.
The morning in general was a great success.
Thank you to Mr Cook for his organisation and all the staff who helped with the activities.
