Growth with Progress
ELmsett held their Farm themed sports day on Friday 14th July.
After the opening procession led by the Sports Captain, Jack and the school Team Captains, the Olympic Oath was read out, the flag was erected and Owls Dance Club started off proceedings with their foot-perfect dance to Timber.
The first race of the day was the dash and the races started with the children in Reception class and worked their way up the school to year 6.
This was followed by the hurdles and then the novelty class races: Hobby-horse Trials, Collect the Eggs, Harvest the Corn and Dairy Dash.
The team relay was a very close run race - as were the pre-school race and the many heats of the parents egg and spoon race - perhaps the most competitive of the day!
It was an excellent morning of sport and competition followed by a family picnic on the meadow - even the rain held off for us!
