The children of The Old School House Nursery have been celebrating their achievements with their annual sports day. Held on the school playing field, it was so nice to see family and friends turn out to encourage and cheer them on.
Races were split into age groups and all of the children couldn’t wait to get started. Starting with a running race to get those legs moving – albeit very short legs for some! The smile that greeted those holding the finish line was worth the wait. Next came the egg and spoon race.
Trying to get the children not to hold the egg on the spoon was a challenge in itself. However the older children knew to put their arm behind their back and that speed does not always win this particular race – one child remembering “slow and steady wins the race”.
They then moved to the more advanced races like bean bags in a bucket and rings on the head, finally finishing with a brothers and sister race, which was very competitive.
With refreshments being served and some side shows to have a go at, the afternoon was a real joy and with tired children going home, all with a medal round their neck, made for a very happy occasion.
Our next adventure at the nursery is their visit to Foxburrow Farm, when they are Going on a Bear Hunt!
