Schoolchildren showed their competitive side at a sports day as 18 primary schools from Stevenage, Knebworth and surrounding villages battled it out for places on the podium.
After an opening ceremony which featured all the schools proceeding around Stevenage’s Ridlins End athletics track with flags, pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 pupils competed in a range of track and field events.
Community link officer Emily Woolston of Stevenage Sporting Futures, which organised Friday’s tournament, said: “The children really enjoyed themselves and at the end we had a teachers’ race where they realised it is quite daunting running in front of a crowd.”
Each school entered two teams, one made of Year 4 pupils and the other a mix of Year 5 and 6 pupils.
Almond Hill Junior School claimed the medal for Year 4 pupils and Moss Bury Primary School took home the winner’s medal for Year 5 and 6 as well as being named the day’s overall winner.
A team of 15 pupils from The Barclay School helped run the day.
