Primary One Sport’s

Primary One had a great time yesterday afternoon on the astro for their sport’s. The weather was great which was a bonus.

Primary one took part in six events. The egg and spoon race, skipping, an obstacle course, relay race with batons to pass, using the hockey sticks to manoevre the ball around some cones and tossing the beanbags into the hoops that were progressively further and further away.

The majority of the children enjoyed the egg and spoon race the most, which was actually a potato rather than an egg. Everyone worked really hard especially at the skipping which many found quite tricky. All the children tried their best and a good time was had by all.
