It was a beautiful afternoon for the first Intra-School competition today organised by the School Sports Organising Crew - 'Run the Green; with a twist!'
The bronze ambassadors ran a short assembly where they explained to the children what the 'twists' were and how the event would work and then the whole school headed out onto Butts Green.
Skippers and their buddies took to the start line first completing half a lap of the green including going through hoops and crawling under a parachute. There were many smiles and proud faces as they came into the finish cheered on by the rest of the school.
Next up were Admirals, completing 1 lap of the green with the same twists as skippers plus an extra one up the final straight; speed ladders. Emperors followed on from them completing 3 laps of the course with swallowtails joining them for 2 laps.
All of the teachers were very impressed with the ease with which all the children completed the course; the Golden Mile has certainly made a difference to the children's stamina and perseverance. In fact they did so well that we think everyone will have to run twice as far next year! Well done all Lockerley runners.
The house and medal winners will be announced in celebration assembly next week.
