We invited Year 2 children from Mellor St Mary' s CE Primary and St Mary's Osbaldeston to compete in an extra sports day at Balderstone School.
We split the schools into six mixed teams, named: Purple Gorillas, Orange Tigers, Red Foxes, Green Crocodiles, Yellow Lions and Blue Dolphins. The teams were mixed from all three schools.
Children rotated around six activities: javelin, hockey stick dribbling, beanbag relay (with a bean bag in children's heads), penalty shoot out and an obstacle course. We planned a rest station with refreshments. We organised races in schools in sprint and long distance.
Every child left with a certificate for representing their team/participating. The winning team and runners also received medals.
All of the infant children had a great day and really enjoyed it.
