Children in Years 3-6 held their sports day events at Withycombe Rugby Club, while Foundation-Year 2 enjoyed their events on the school field in the afternoon. The day was punctuated with a really jovial family picnic on the school field, with the addition of refreshments and ice-pop sales from our PTFA volunteers.
The sun was shining on us, and everybody was smiling - what a fabulous way for the school community to come together. We saw lots of determination and friendly competition giving our sports enthusiasts a chance to shine, and in true Withycombe style we also saw children having fun, cheering each other on and helping each other out.
Our Year 5 children were great role models and helped the younger children with their events in the afternoon. Thanks also to the students from Exmouth Community College for taking on this role in the morning session.
Children competed in teams representing their 'House' and KS2 children wore T shirrs in their corresponding house colours. Coincidentally the Yellow team won the trophy in both the morning and afternoon events - well done everybody!
Thank you to all the families who came along to cheer the children on - it was a brilliant day and it really does help to make nice memories.
