We were lucky again this year for our annual sports week – the first we have been able to hold on the Recreation Ground since 2019. As you can read in James’s report below, everyone enjoyed themselves!
Two teams of Year Fours took part in the Ilminster area tennis competition. Overall the school placed second and one team went onto the area finals in Yeovil. They all performed brilliantly and showed great sportsmanship and teamwork.
Another team took part in the Chard Quadkids competition at Holyrood Academy completing a Key Stage Two team with Swanmead. Each child took part in four events; a sprint; a long-distance run; a javelin throw and a standing long jump. The children were very proud to bring back the championship trophy!
In the run up to the Commonwealth Games which are being held in Birmingham this year the children enjoyed taking part in our own commonwealth games the highlight of which was a whole school dance choreographed by Mrs Holley
Greenfylde Sports Week by James L in Coopers class
The grand annual Sports Week took place at the recreation ground from the 13th of June to the 17th of June. Each pupil took part in at least one event. Pupils at Greenfylde all showed off their skills and had fun. On Monday, the children all did a running race. The sun was shining brightly that day and everybody was sweating in the scorching heat from the sun. The children all took part in their own year group relay race. The Year 4’s did a water cup race. On Tuesday, the school had a Commonwealth Games Day, where all the children performed a dance and did different games. On Wednesday, some children from Greenfylde and Swanmead took first place in the Quad Kids competition at Holyrood Academy. On Thursday, the pupils were back out into the boiling hot weather for field events. “This is probably the best sports day so far and definitely the hottest,” said Luke. On Friday, they experienced the hottest day. It was their swimming day so they did water polo, one team got 8 points and the other got 3 points. “Sports week has been a very exciting and fun week and we’re very proud of our students who won the trophy,” said Mrs Nakayama. “We’ve interviewed the teachers who are very happy the students had fun.”
