School Games Day - Friday 15th June
During a recent staff meeting, Mrs Cheeseman promised staff that Brookwood's School Games Day would be like no other and she certainly delivered that promise! After a week of preparation and heats, the children began the finals on Thursday afternoon in the throwing and jumping. With scores almost level, it increased the excitement and intensity of Friday!
With the field freshly cut and with markings painted, Mrs Cheeseman even kept her promise of sunshine! The morning consisted of a variety of team events where children scored points for team work, resilience, effort and ability. Owls Class did a fantastic job at hosting each station.
As we moved into the afternoon it was time for the much anticipated track events where children competed in sprints, long distance, relays and of course the traditional fun races and obstacle courses. Talent, speed, effort and sporting behaviour shone as while the temperatures soared, performances also rose!!
Well done to Oak for a fantastic overall victory but congratulations to everyone who competed for their houses and in front of a very appreciative and encouraging crowd! Our thanks go to the children, families and staff for making the day such a memorable one but in particular to Mrs Cheeseman, who did an amazing job organising and running the day!
