Olympics Days are a hit!

July 2019

With an Olympian in the team an annual Olympics Day is a no-brainer, and for the second year running we held our Olympics Days at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield last week.

420 children from 16 primary schools took part in 2 days of action packed competition looking to take home the trophies and medals for KS1 and KS2 champions. In a venue like the EIS the days would not have been complete without a full parade around the 200m track, an official Olympics-style oath taking by the athletes, and a trophy and medal presentation on the podium.

The atmosphere was electric and eventual winners were Hartley Brook Primary Academy, KS1 champions, and Gooseacre Primary Academy, KS2 champions.

PE Coordinators from the primary schools gave their feedback and you can hear it here...
