Rolling, rolling, rolling

I think Mrs Hill has established a new tradition for the school today with a simply awesome bit of Easter fun.

Today saw the inaugural Egg Roll Competition, with the three houses pitted against each other in a game of skill, luck and blowing power.  There were clear winners, gravity-defying uphill rollers and the odd stuck egg as representatives from each house faced each other in a series of ovoidal races from the top of the playground to the bottom.  Points were awarded for each round with the house with the most overall taking the first crown.

That honour (and a Creme Egg reward each) was taken by Ladybower:

Perhaps they should have been awarded an egg cup 😉

So much fun!

It was run by the Sports Crew, and they did an amazing job running, commentating and refereeing the competition from start to finish – superb work guys.

Fantastic Football

Today was our fantastic football tournament, organised by us, the Sports Crew.

It was a great success as we raised £37 towards the Thomas Theyer Foundation, and everyone who played enjoyed themselves.  It started off with all the teams playing each other and the winners went through to the semi finals.  The results were:

Tottenham 0: 2  Manchester Utd

Chesterfield  2:1  Chelsea

So the third place play-off was between Tottenham and Chelsea, a tight game and it was 1-0 to Chelsea.

Chelsea – 3rd Place

The final was played between Manchester Utd and Chesterfield and the eventual winners were Utd, winning 3-2.

Chesterfield – 2nd Place

Manchester Utd – WINNERS!

The crowd enjoyed it a lot as they cheered on every team playing, with lots of encouragement.  Thank you to all the donations made, we feel proud about the first tournament that we have ever organised by ourselves.
