Sport Relief at Wilstead Lower School

Amazing, energetic, enthusiastic, collaborative and just plain fun!

Sports Relief ImageWilstead Lower School children spent a fantastic Friday, 21st March participating in loads of different sporting activities, raising money for this year’s Sport Relief.

Our day started with a whole school assembly.  The school Sports Council lead the assembly giving us loads of interesting facts about Sports Relief.  We also watched a poignant video showing us how Sport Relief spend some of their money helping children in other countries.

Wilstead-Lower-School-Sports-ReliefWe spent most of the day in mixed-age groups going around a carousel of activities. With an infectious buzz of excitement as we encouraged and cheered each other on.  If that was not enough, lunch time saw a penalty shoot-out between Mr Kerin (the class 2 teacher)  and…… THE WHOLE SCHOOL!   

Volunteers from each class lined up to take their turn at firing in shots against the only Everton supporter in the school.  So how did they do?   Well, of the 60 or so children that took part, only five were successful in beating the keeper.  Mr Kerin and his nerves of steel were almost unbeatable!  All the children were great sports but the “Man of the Match” was Isabella Duffy from Year 4.  Hers was a beautiful shot to the top left corner of the goal, sailing past the reaching out fingers of Wilstead’s very own Tim Howard!

Together we raised £120 for Sports relief by:

  • rope skipping;
  • limbo bending;
  • hula-hoop spinning;
  • circuit running;
  • long jumping;
  • ball throwing;
  • crazy dancing;
  • hockey dribbling;
  • tennis hitting and
  • basketball scoring!
