Some things in life are worth waiting for and St Francis CE Primary Sports Day 2014 certainly fits that description!
After being frustrated by the changeable weather over the past 2 weeks, yesterday the school held it's inclusive, team-based Sports Day and fun was had by all pupils ... as well as the 160 parents and friends who watched from the bank!
Mixed aged teams competed in a mixture of multi-skills events, designed to challenge an array of skills - from accuracy with a javelin or cricket ball, to demonstrating balance on the beam or agility across the ladder - St Francis children tried it all!
After compiling the scores, this year's winners were the Cheetahs, captained by Emilia in Year 6, with a fantastic 460 points. Impressively, they won 4 of the 12 events - most of which had an accuracy element. ...St Francis pupils are clearly 'on target'!
The winning team will receive medals in school assembly very soon.
