Sports Day 2017

Key Stage 2 Sports Day (11.7.17 + 12.7.17)

What a Sports day! Exciting, energetic and fun. What more could anyone want? Despite the Great British Summer's changeable weather we managed to squeeze in Sports day between the showery wet days. Again, Whinlatter were defending their title of 2 years and hoping to make it a "Hat trick" of winning titles. However all the other houses Kirkstone, Newlands and Honister had other ideas!

All of the children competed brilliantly well and in the manner befitting a competitive Sports day. Everyone enjoyed themselves, none more so than the children themselves.

Below you can see some of the morning events which the children in Upper Key Stage 2 took part in. All events in the morning mirror that of a proper track and field meet, which they will eventually experience at Secondary school.

Below: Long Jump

Below: Discus

Below you can view the afternoon events. These events are targeted at Lower Key stage 2. However, children in Upper Key Stage 2 also compete in such events to ensure inclusion throughout each Key Stage phase. Furthermore, these events mirror events often held at the local country shows in the surrounding area which gives the children a head start, if they ever compete at these country fairs.

Key stage 2 Sports Day (14.7.2016)

Another brilliant Sports Day was duly delivered this year. Every house was chomping at the bit to relieve Whinlatter of their 2015 winners title. The weather was perfect for a festival athletics. This day always creates a buzz around the school and among the children and this year, again, was no different. Everyone had been buzzing with excitement since the trial days in both Upper and Lower Key stage 2, as were many of the staff!

Everyone who took part and who visited the school to watch the competition thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Furthermore, a huge thank you goes out to the PTA for providing much needed refreshments to both children and adults alike!

It was a closely fought contest in the end between Newlands (Green) and Whinlatter (Yellow). In the end Whinlatter won by 25 points. Two consecutive wins by Whinlatter! I wonder if they can obtain a treble, next year in 2017? Every house will want to topple them dearly.

Sports Days 2015

Key stage 2 Sports Day (30.6.2015)

Sports day is one of the biggest events in the Beaconside key stage 2 calendar; it creates a real buzz among the children as soon as the sports day trials begin and this year was no different. For weeks the children have been talking about sports day and the lead up to the event. Newlands were keen to defend their title and all the other houses couldn't wait for the chance to obtain the title and lift some silverware for themselves.

Sports day,itself,was a huge success and went without a hitch. The sun was glorious and allowed for each event to run without a hitch. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed both the morning and afternoon events.

The morning track and field events cater for year 5 & 6 and mirror a real track and field meeting. All the events were keenly fought between the houses (Honister/Red, Newlands/Green, Whinlatter/Yellow and Kirkstone/ Blue.

 

Below are pictures of the morning events which comprised of Javelin, Discus, Shot, Long Throw, Long Jump and the Long run. 

 

 

Below are the houses readying themselves for the afternoon events which are comprised of team games which ensures all children get to compete at least twice for their house during Sports day Team games consist of Corner spry, Tunnel ball and the Bean bag relay. Individual events  are Sack race, Egg and Spoon race and the sprints, both 60m for years 3 and 4 and the 80m for years 5 and 6; the Sprint relay races are also included in the afternoon event and they provide the perfect final for a brilliant day. Some of our events add a flavor of a traditional English sports day that harks back to a by-gone era. All in all the Beaconside Sports day is all encompassing providing a range and breadth of events which caters for all year groups and abilities at the school; ensuring all children compete for their houses.

 

Below are pictures of children competing in the afternoon events - giving it their all - along with some pictures of successful teams basking in the glory of their success on the podium too.

 

We would like to thank, massively, all the staff who organised the event. Furthermore a huge thank you goes out to all staff and parent helpers who gave up their time and efforts to allow a highly successful sports day to unfold. Moreover, we would like to thank all the parents/carers who came to support yet another superb Beaconside sports day.
