As I am sure all of the Four Swannes community are aware, from Monday 21st June through to Friday 25th June, we enjoyed a fun week of sporting excellence and high levels of physical activity.
All staff and children were able to enjoy a full day of fun and exciting activities which included tasks such as boot camp, wall climbing and archery, to name but a few. It was very rewarding to see young people attempting new things whilst being supported by their peers and teaching staff. A fabulous day enjoyed by the whole school, which was a first, since the beginning of the pandemic.
Thursday 22nd saw a return of the school sports day which had to be a ‘bubble’ based day, rather than a whole school-house event. Regardless of this necessary change, it was a very active day with lots of healthy competition between teams. The points from the day were collated and these would be added together to identify a whole school team winner. Some great performances from classes and individuals. Well done to all!
Finally, to top it all off, we planned to have an awards ceremony on the 23rd. However, due to circumstances (weather!), we had to postpone this until the following week. It was worth the wait as we recognised individual effort and identified the winning team in our first whole school sports awards ceremony. Sports Personality of the year awards were given as well as achievement awards. Overall team winner was announced, and all the children applauded and congratulated their peers.
This has been a wonderful precursor to the schools Healthy and Active plans for 2021/22 academic year where healthy eating and physical activity will become a very important part of the school’s ethos. A massive thank you must go to Mrs Alcock as without her support and organisation, none of this would have taken place. Well done to all involved and enjoy the photos.
