Early Years Sports Day 2015-16

January 20, 2016

On Friday last week was our Early Years Sports Day, and our Early Years campus came up to Windsor park to make use of the fantastic facilities available on our larger campus. It was a great day, with children competing in competitions from an exciting water relay to the classic egg and spoon race. The aim of the day was to build teamwork and cooperation, I was impressed both by how the houses worked together to gain points but also by how generously they cheered on their competitors. Even our Pre-Nursrey children showed the excellent sportsmanship that we have come to expect at Bromsgrove. Although we understand the importance of teamwork, there was still a competitive element to the event. The most intense competition was seen in the staff vs parents basketball shoot off. I was delighted to see how many staff and parents volunteered to take part. Our parent body won five baskets against two, much to the disappointment of our teaching staff who are already calling for a rematch next year. The week ended with our termly Learning and Progress Conversations, and I was delighted by how well attended the event was, a real testament to families and teachers working partnership. I would also like to thank all of the families who gave such kind feedback to both myself and their class teachers.
