Proud parents watched their children compete in Pinchbeck East Primary School’s sports day last Wednesday.

The sports day managed to go ahead despite complications due to a long and expensive building project to have two new classrooms that will finish in early September.

Head of school, Teeny Vayro, said: “It really was very successful and the parents were very supportive by coming to see the children compete and were understanding of the issues with the building project. We usually have a parents’ race and refreshments but we couldn’t this year because of the project taking up space on the sports field and concerns for safety.”

KS1 races were held in the morning and included crayon, running and seaside races. These were themed relay races that the younger pupils found really fun.

KS2 races were held in the afternoon and included egg and spoon, relay, skipping and sack races for the older pupils.

Every child got involved and took part in at least one race and everyone found the day very enjoyable.

After all the races had finished in the afternoon, Tom Wand, in Year 6, was named “sports personality of the year” because of his contribution to sport in the school and sportsman-like attitude.

The winners of the track events were Needs House and the winner of the field events were Burton House.
