KS2 Sports Day

Every year the children at Aloha College participate in this fun and exciting day.This year on the morning of Thursday 12 May the children arrived at school in their House t-shirts, red for Cordoba, yellow for Sevilla and green for Granada. The playground looked even brighter and more colourful than usual, with the children excited about taking part in the event. The children from Years 3 to 6 all mixed together in their houses out on the astro turf as the games commenced. The events were set into motion with the long -distance races for each year group: this put Sevilla at an early advantage as they gained the most points from the first few races. The sprints were then followed by the long jump, the javelin and discus. At this stage the points were evened out with Granada taking a slight lead into the half-way stage.The egg and spoon race was next, with the sack race and the hurdles relay to follow. It was then the chance for the children to dress up a bit and go through a set of obstacles to compete in the obstacle race. The children’s events were finished with the relays, which enabled the teams to gain double points. The three teams battled hard, but it was Granada that eventually came out on top, with Sevilla gaining second only 2 points ahead of Cordoba in third.The morning finished with the children cheering their mums and dads in the parents’ races. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event, only made possible by the team of committed staff in the primary school, the excellent 6th form helpers and of course our well behaved children.We hope to see you all again next year,
