Pre-Prep Sports Day

The children proudly marched out to ‘We’re all going on a Summer Holiday’, full of energy and excitement for the Elstree Pre-Prep Sports Day 2023. It was an afternoon of fun and happiness. All the races were connected to the theme of Summer.

Nursery ‘swam’ under the sea with great confidence, they loved their ice cream relay, the only downer was the lack of real ice creams, although this was remedied later! They managed to catch a huge number of ducks in their ‘Quack, Quack, Quack race’ and we were all impressed with their counting ability when it came to working out how many they had captured!

Reception is clearly full of surfing dudes, judging by the poses at the end of the race. They did a great job of packing their cases and watching them run down the track dragging their cabin cases was a sight none of us will forget in a hurry! The smiles on their faces said it all.

The highlight of the Year 1 races has to be the sunbathing hurdles. The children’s trust in each other’s jumping ability was commendable, and there has clearly been plenty of towel folding practice going on! They did some fabulous donkey riding and managed to control beachballs while wearing oversized sunglasses!

Year 2 jumped waves and sprinted to the seaside. They loved their ‘Full Lap Relay’ and impressed us with their enthusiasm and determination. Each one returning from their lap with a massive smile of satisfaction that they had run their very best. Who could ask for more?

It was a hugely happy afternoon, one that the children will look back on in years to come as an exceptionally special memory.

What did the children think?

India: I like running all the way around the track. I went fast. 

Henry: Please can I run round the track again?
