Our Mini Olympians show us how it’s done

Despite the dark clouds and intermittent rain, the Mini Olympics got off to a flying start on Bates, with athletes ranging from age 3 to 6. Our visitors from Boot Farm formed one team, while Nursery, Reception and Year 1 formed the others.

Besides sprinting, jumping and throwing, there were ribbon performances, soft javelins and relays. Parents, Grandparents, Friends and Staff watched the focused athletes from the sidelines, and enjoyed afternoon refreshments in the Long Room once the races came to an end.

Thank you to our Year 8 pupils for helping on the day.
