Last week a group of ten children from Year 4 attended the Davenies Superstars festival in Beaconsfield. We were terribly excited to leave school early and get there for the start of the sports activities at 3pm.
The first activity was a jump, run and twist around a small course. This was quite easy and helped to warm us up. Then we used our ball skills to throw a ball to hit another out of cricket stumps. This was really good fun. For our third activity we went back to the 70s! We bounced around on spacehoppers and tried to get to the other side of a course without falling off. This was more difficult than we thought but an awful lot of fun.
A penalty shoot-out was our fourth activity, where for each goal we scored a point. Then we threw beanbags over a volleyball net in order to get as many catches in a row – the highest score overall was 13, but our team’s highest was 7. Again, it was more difficult than it looked!
Finally, we played basketball, scoring a point for each successful basket. Then we played a game called Cat and Mouse, where two teams chased each around a circuit. The first team to catch the other won.
We enjoyed the competition with other schools, and by the end we had collected enough points to be fourth out of eight schools.
To cap a great day, we were treated to pizza, donuts and juice – not a bad day out for the year 4s!
