Sports day Y1 – Y6 05 February 2015 This week we held the first of our four sports mornings for the children in the Primary School. It was a colourful, fun and active morning for the Y1 and Y2 classes on Wednesday and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves as they practised the basic skills of running, jumping and throwing. The morning began with an hour of activities. Each class rotated round the following 6 activities: • Hurdles – running and jumping over small hurdles of different heights • Bulls-eye – aiming carefully to throw soft balls into a net • Jumping Beans – jumping from one coloured spot to another as quickly as possible • Treasure Island – running round soft obstacles to avoid being caught by the “monsters” • Hoopla – throwing hoops carefully over the skittles • At the Zoo – running to pick up soft animal toys The morning ended with running races for each class followed by the ever popular parent v teachers’ tug of war. And guess what? The parent team won yet again! The running races and activities all scored house points, so Dalat were thrilled to discover that they had won the first of our sports mornings: 4th place – Hanoi with 502 points 3rd place – Hue with 535 points 2nd place – Saigon with 541 points 1st place – Dalat with 567 points Thank you to all the parents of Y1 and Y2 children who came along on Wednesday. It’s been a great week for sport at BVIS. Year 3 and 4 had their Sports Morning on Wednesday and Year 5 and 6 on Thursday morning. All children were competing in their houses, to see who could accumulate the most house points by competing in six field events including: • Basketball throw • Javelin • Standing long jump • “Treasure island” • “Hoopla” • Speed bounce After the field events, children competed in running races and then the ever popular house tug-of-war. As always, there was time for a little bit more fun with the parents and teachers’ races and tug-of-war. The points were counted and ‘Dalat’ were crowned champions for Year 3 and 4 and ‘Hanoi’ for Year 5 and 6. Congratulations to all children for trying their best. I would like to thank the PE department for organising these events this week and it was clear to see from the faces of the children that lots of enjoyment was had. Thanks also to parents who were able to support these events.
