Olympic Themed Weekend
Stamford Junior School enjoyed an action packed Olympic-themed weekend where the pupils showed their Team GB spirit ahead of London 2012. The children from Years 4 to 6 took part in an array of activities including synchronised swimming and Olympic style picnic making.
The weekend was centred on getting the pupils into the spirit of the Games. The events commenced with the children putting together a collage of their sporting achievements, which were placed within five Olympic rings. They then enjoyed a series of Wipeout games in the rain.
Michelle Hewett, teacher at Stamford Junior School said, “Even though the pupils ended up quite wet, they clearly enjoyed the experience as they were all demanding more of the same the next day! The highlight of the weekend for the pupils was taking part in a synchronised swimming competition, with the winners receiving chocolate medals on podiums!”
