Mrs Dwight's Wetherleigh Wanderers Win Sports Day
Congratulations to Mrs Dwight's Wetherleigh Wanderers for winning the 2013 Key Stage Two Sports Day. The team narrowly pipped Mr Tibbles' Lassington Legends by one point. On a lovely afternoon the pupils of Highnam Academy took part in a friendly but competitive Sports Day. This year there were five teams named after local roads or areas. The team names were:
Miss Thomas' Maidenhall Mauranders
Mrs Ruxton's Rodway Racers
Mrs Dwight's Wetherleigh Wanderers
Mr Tibbles' Lassington Legends
Mr Dean's Oakridge Overtakers
This year there were the traditional running races but also included were a selection of field events too. Year 3 threw a tennis ball, Year 4 a mini-howler, Year 5 a javelin and Year 6 a discus. Following the traditional pupil and adult race the results were announced.
In second place was Mr Tibbles' team with a score of 73 points but Mrs Dwight's team scored 74 to just win!
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the teams and to all the helpers on the day. Finally, a big 'well done' to all of the competitors.
