Mini Olympics at Lydgate Infant School

Thursday 12 Jul 2018 07:27am

Officials checked their watches, final preparations were made and the summer sun beat down strongly on the competitors. This wasn't a scene from the World Cup in Russia but from Lydgate Infant School's Mini Olympics which took place on Wednesday 4th July. It was a full day of activities in which Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 classes all took part. Just like in a real Olympics, our athletes were tested on their speed, agility and teamwork. They competed in 10 different events, including hurdles, skipping, speed bounce and bean bag biathlon. Despite the warm weather, the children performed admirably: cheering each other on, listening carefully to instructions and giving their all in each event. We would like to say a big thank you to Luke and Kyle from Forge School Sport Partnership who organised and ran the events and to Mrs Wymer and all the Year 5 Playmakers from Lydgate Junior School who explained the rules of each game, encouraged the athletes and recorded the scores. Lastly, thanks to all the children who took part in this fantastic day of sport. Well done everyone!
