The NHSSP Legacy Games on Thursday saw 38 year 6’s compete at Knights Templar School. After a misty start the games were blessed with a lovely sunny afternoon.
The event stared with a torch relay and John running for the Netherlands, the country that William Ransom had been allocated. Introductions were made before the children split into groups and were taken to their respective events.
This was a great opportunity to go round and watch the children compete in some new events. Mrs Wheat and I were proud to watch their sportsmanship and the support and encouragement which they gave one another. At an event like this the children need to be trusted to listen politely, to work together and compete in an acceptable way with a minimum of fuss and I am pleased to say that our teams were complimented on their exemplary behaviour.
To win some medals at the closing ceremony was a bonus to a thoroughly enjoyable day. Thanks to Tyler and Ilyssa there was a gold in the table tennis, then silver in the boccia, basketball and sitting volleyball and bronze in the Hi-5 netball.
Well done to all of the children involved and thanks to NHSSP for their organisation and delivery of an enjoyable day for all involved.
This was a great start to the sports events in which William Ransom competes. The children are now looking forward to the competitive football which starts next week and the netball and cross country which starts the week after next. We wish our teams the best of luck as they represent the school.
