The sun shone for us, and we couldn’t have asked for better conditions in which to showcase our junior athletes as they participated in their sports day. The teams and team leaders looked fabulous in their house T-shirts and caps, and the girls worked really well together to score points in the fun activities, based around running, jumping and throwing. Year 6 were fantastic, and looked after their teams superbly as team leaders; explained rules and looked after the different activity stations; helped judge races and gave out many stickers. One of our games captains, Eva, was very good with the horn, time-keeping and music, assisted by our work experience girls.
After the carousel of fun activities, points were added up, and Chartwell Chives and Cherries were just one point ahead of Hever Hollies and Hawthornes on 663 and 662 points respectively! Each girl then ran in a 40m sprint race, and more points were added to every house to reward effort and achievement. The final scores showed that Hever Hollies and Hawthornes managed to overtake Chartwell Chives and Cherries and they won by 10 points.
1st – Hever Hollies and Hawthornes
2nd – Chartwell Chives and Cherries
3rd – Penshurst Poppies and Primroses
4th – Knole Nightshades and Nemesias
Thank you to the PE department and Year 6 for a wonderful afternoon.
