Sports Day Victory!!

Yesterday was the girls sports day at school....It nearly didn't happen....The weather wasn't too great it was grey and we had fine, misty rain for most of the morning....The sun did eventually come out and all was good.....

First up was the sprint races....All the children ran in small groups of 5 or 6 children and there was 1st, 2nd & 3rd place stickers given out to the winners....

Year 1 did their races and then onto Year two which Ellie is in.....She was fantastic! She went running past looking at my friends and I with the biggest grin on her face!! I was too busy laughing at her to see she had came 3rd!!! Way to go girl!!

They went through the classes and we got to Becky's class, year 6.....I know Becky hates running....To be honest she isn't good at it.....I never was when I was her age....I'm still rubbish now....I have no speed at all....She does try her best and always has a smile on her face though....It's the taking part that counts!! Becky sadly came last in her group but she seemed fine about it......

Then it was onto the fun races.....The three legged one was hilarious and the sack race....I shouldn't laugh at kids falling over but I did....lol

Both my girls were in the Egg n Spoon races.....Ellie up first......She got another 3rd place!! There was plastic eggs flying everywhere....

Then Becky.....A few years ago when Becky was in Year 1 or 2 she did the Egg n Spoon race and not to be nasty but most of the kids cheated and held the eggs....Becky did it properly...Never dropped it once but still didn't get placed...This time I had noticed one of the teachers at the finishing line was disqualifying kids who were cheating and not playing fair....ha ha ha! Good on him!!

Becky went most of the race without dropping it.....It was between her and another boy...They were well in front of the other kids....They both dropped their eggs at the same time....Picked them up at the same time and then Becky sped up a bit.....She came 1st!!!


For a girl who hates sport and hates competing this is such a big achievement.....She was so pleased with her self and had every right to be....She has gone her whole school life being the loser in sports....Now she can finish her Primary School education and say she won a race at sports day.....I am so, so very proud of her!!!

  14. Well done Becky & Ellie, a true sports day to be celebrated. I'm glad the teacher played by the rules for the egg and spoon race, it's a life lesson that the children need to learn. Congratulations to them both.
