Crescent’s Sports Day Was A Super Record-Breaking Success
Crescent School’s Key Stage 2 Sports Day took place on Tuesday 6 June on Princethorpe College’s playing fields.
The day dawned dry but cold and the chilly wind kept everyone on the toes. Sports Day is always super fun for everyone at school and race after race, event after event our young athletes didn’t disappoint, as they leapt, threw and sprinted to make this year’s Sports Day another super record-breaking success.
Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 competed separately in sprints, a middle distance 600m run, the Long Jump, High Jump, a Throwing Challenge and the House Relay Race. All the events were hotly contested and as always there were some smashing new school records.
Years 3/4 Boys 600m - Thomas (3S) – 2.14.56 minutes
Years 5/6 Boys 600m - Sam B (5F) - 2.13.49 minutes
Years 5/6 Girls 150m - Ellie (6W) - 23.71 seconds
Years 5/6 Boys 150m - Edward G-H (5F) - 25.19 seconds
At Crescent, Sports Day isn’t just about the competition, it is also all about the participation. On the day every child took part and, most importantly, every child had fun. As is always the case the children’s behaviour was impeccable, they offered support and encouragement to each other and congratulated and commiserated with good heart. True Olympic spirit on show all round.
At the end of a very busy morning, Mr Thackway was delighted to announce the House results and to present the trophies. It was a very close affair with just one point in it in the end. Many congratulations to the blues this year!
