Sports Days

We are pleased that we were able to hold our Sports Days at the Leys’ outdoor sports facilities this year. Although this annual event had not yet returned to normal (Infants, Juniors, and Seniors competed on separate days, and the customary whole-school picnic was notably absent), parents were happily able to spectate this year, within their class bubbles. Older pupils provided support and helped to record the results for each event — Year 6 with Infants, Year 9 supporting Juniors, and Year 11s for Seniors — allowing an opportunity for interaction between age groups that everyone has been missing this past year.

Infant events included running, relay races, bouncing, jumping and throwing. Juniors competed in races of different length, as well as athletic events like the shot put and long jump. Seniors participated in running races, shot put, javelin, high jump, long jump, discus and javelin. Pupils were divided into teams competing for the top spot in each event, but despite the spirit of competition, good fun and festivity prevailed.

The final results, as well as a gallery of images, are below. Mrs Eastwood writes, ‘Congratulations Red Team, but well done to everybody for amazing effort across all three sports days!’
