12:00pm Friday 20th July 2012 in News
PORTHLEVEN Primary School got into the spirit of the London Games by adding an Olympic themed twist to their annual sports day.
An opening ceremony in the school playground kick-started the event, which saw all 300 students performing an Olympic dance.
The youngsters were then divided up into their houses, which each represented a different country with their corresponding flag.
Parents were able to follow their children around the playground as they competed in various sporting events, including shot put, long jump and a relay.
PE co-ordinator Mrs Bidgood said: “The children had a fantastic day. They all worked so well together and were great team players even though there was rain. I was very impressed with their team spirit, sporting ability and enthusiasm.”
Children were awarded either a gold, silver or bronze medal, with Methleigh House being crowned overall champions. The day was ended with a song, which was both sung and performed in sign language.
