Today, we went to the hub at Regent’s Park to take part in a Westminster multi-skills sporting event.
When we arrived at the park, we found a big sycamore tree to cover from the rain and we then went to our first event where practiced our underarm and overarm throwing. We had to try to aim towards three different targets, worth different values. We were split into two teams and tried to gather as many points as possible. We did really well to cheer each other on and demonstrated some great sportsmanship. After this we went to a different event that involved some jumping, sprinting and throwing! In this agility activity, we worked in our teams again and worked to race against each other but to also try to win the most points with our accuracy when throwing.
Then we went to the egg and spoon race which is Mrs Hope’s favourite! Lots of eggs were cracked because some of us couldn’t hold our spoons still before we even started! For this event, we were in our Sports Day teams and got in some egg-stra practice before the big day in a few weeks. Our teachers even got the chance to join us and took it very seriously! The next event involved rock, paper, scissors, throwing and targets. We had another event which used a tennis racket and then weaving in and out of cones to get to the other side. For this one, the losing team had to do a forfeit which saw us race across half of the field against each other. Our final event was called ‘over and under’ with a big, colourful ball. We had three teams and practiced our passing, concentration, patience, communication and coordination! We were exhausted by the time that this one finished and couldn’t wait for lunch.
Lots of us said we were hungry from the moment we left school (at 9:20am) so we were super duper excited for lunchtime. We sat underneath our tree and ate our delicious packed lunches and chatted away with our friends. We played a few games of eye spy and our favourite counting game, which is another game that involves patience!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the parents that came along with us to help us with this event. They always help us to travel around London so safely and we hugely appreciate their support. We would also like to say thank you to Mr Aitken for organising the event.
