Congratulations to Matterhorn who were the overall winners of KS1 and KS2 Sports Days.
Everest won the relay and Snowdon won the house races.
Twenty children from Year 5 went to Lea Valley Sports Centre to take part in a variety of sports.
The first sport we played was Tag Rugby. We started with some games to get us used to pulling the tag from each other. This is supposed to be a non contact sport but as you can see from some of the photos, there was a bit of contact. It was a very hot day but we really enjoyed it. Hopefully TC Sports will be starting a Tag Rugby Club in September.
Boccia was the next sport we tried. This is mainly played by competitors who have a physical disability that requires a wheelchair. We tried this game standing up and sitting down. It is a bit like bowls or pétanque. Mr Tomsu and Chris (our sports coach from Tottenham Hotspur) were very competitive!
We ended the afternoon with Handball. This sport is a combination of basketball, football and netball. It is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each pass a ball using their hands. The aim is to throw the ball into the goal of the other team. Mr Tomsu and Chris were throwing themselves around in the goals!
Recently, 27 children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to Lea Valley Athletics Centre to compete against other schools. The activities were the 4x4 relay races, 800m, 150m, 80m, 60m and 50m. The competitors that entered the 800m had to run round the whole track twice! Winners of all the events then took part in the finals on another day. Unfortunately, although some Walker children came first in their race, overall other schools were faster. It was a great experience for all the children that took part.
