First Sports Day

16th July 2019
Poplar Farm School celebrated our first ever Sports Day during a very warm afternoon on the school field.
 
After lots of practice during PE lessons, pupils took part in flat races, bean bag balancing and sack races with everyone doing fantastically well in front of a big crowd!
 
We had so much interest for the grown-up races that we had to run two heats for both the Dads/Uncles/Grandads race and the Mums/Aunties/Grandmas race!
 
The toddler race was also fantastic to watch with several older siblings helping out their younger brothers and sisters.
 
During the races, pupils waved the coloured flags of their House to support their teammates. New in recent months, all of our Houses are names after local RAF bases to continue the legacy of our RAF-themed celebration when the school opened.
 
The final results were as follows:
  • Cranwell - 24 points
  • Digby - 26 points
  • Barkston - 44 points
  • Waddington - 46 points
Thank you for your fantastic support on a very hot afternoon!
