During assembly we discussed what it meant to be 'good' sportsmen and sportswomen and the children generated a clear list to use and apply at today's event. We discussed about competition and that life is competitive and that sometimes we might not win everything we do, but if we give it our best shot we can be proud.
Both KS1 and KS2 did themselves proud today - the sportsmanship was superb. The children encouraged each other and the support from the Parents and carers was excellent.
The picnic lunch was a huge success, helped by the fact that we did have such great weather!
This is my first Sports Day here at Trimley St Martin, and I felt the balance of non competitive and competitive events was perfectly balanced. There's a few things we need to tweak before next year's event but overall, and having spoken to a number of you, it was a very successful event.
Well done to BLUE COOL CATS, who were the overall winning team from the morning session and well done to the Yellow dragons who were successful in the afternoon session.
But most importantly well done to every who took part and 'gave it a go'. I was very proud of all the children today! Great stuff!
Thank you Mr Child's for a well designed and well organised sports day, thank you to the Teachers and support staff and thank you to all of the people who can along and encouraged all of the children. A big thank you for the School Association who ran the refreshments stall and preventing you all from wilting in sun!
