On Wednesday 7th July 2010 we had a Sports Day where various sporty activities took place on the field and yard. There was a water relay, drainpipe challenge, golf, balance ball, netball, hockey course, football shoots and javelins. Also there was a team relay and single sprint. The four teams (Red Pike, Blencathra, Great Gable and Helvellyn) were split into two sub-teams, (e.g. Red Pike 1 and Red Pike 2). If you claimed first second or third in the sprint you got a sticker to prove where you came. It was a great day and lovely weather!
