Each Year, the children and adults don their House colours and show their competitive spirit and their sense of fairplay at Ranelagh's Sports Day — postponed last year, Ranelagh had to have 3 Sports Days this year to keep in line with government guidelines.
Children had a magnificent time and there was a real sense that things may be getting back to 'usual'.
The traditional egg and spoon race (badminton racquet and foam ball !), javelin, hurdles were amongst some of the sports day activities. Points were given for winning(obviously) and for fair play. Competing is a real chance to develop resilient strategies — because not everyone can be a winner.
'It was wonderful children taking in a deep breath and painting a smile on their face when they lost, ' said Miss Welburn.
A huge thank you to Miss Tessier and Mr Jordan for organising this successful event. They will be announcing the winners in our final assembly of the year.
