This was the potato and spoon race. Josh was really fast but steady and hardly dropped his potato at all. Ellie was slow and steady, bless her, but she did it really well.
This was what the two of them got up to while waiting their turn at the next race!
This one was the old keep-a-rubber-ring-on-your-head-while-stepping-through-a-hoop race as demonstrated by Ellie...
Their house came last which was such a shame as they did so well. Most of the sports day events are done as relays and they have a certain amount of time to keep going and a teacher counts up how many times the children in each of the houses manage to go in that time. However at the end they have a few of the more traditional races where they have four children racing against each other. Josh was in the skipping race and the running race as he's the only boy in his class who is in yellow. Josh did his best and even though he was in last place for both he didn't give up and kept trying right to the end and he didn't get upset that he didn't win which is a very big deal for Josh.
Ellie ran one race for her class too and she also came last but only just and she is one of the smallest in her class and therefore the school and she ran her very best too. I can't tell you how proud I am of how hard they tried and how well they did. I'm one proud mummy today!
