Wow! Langford 2012 Sports Day was an amazing day! The Olympian themed torch bearing opening ceremony started the day and once the weather had decided to dry the grass the hurdle races warmed up the children and the crowd. All children competed by ability groups in track and field events so we had many events to entertain us. After a sportsman's lunch we all joined in the Para Olympics events wearing blindfolds or kneeling down. The whole school field became a moving body of sport. At the award ceremony there were over 140 bronze and silver certificates and truly amazing gold medals for the winners. The closing ceremony was choreographed around the events that would take place later at London 2012 and it was a superb close to the day

On a very wet and rainy Monday last week, the Foundation children were transported off to Burford Secondary for the Burford Partnership of Schools Multi-skills workshop. This was led by Mrs Brownjohn and the Year 6 children from St Christopher’s. Ninety partnership children took part and the skills the children participated were related to improving the children’s agility, co-ordination and balance which included activities such as throwing, catching, target practice, over and under and hurdles and tag.

“I really enjoyed leading the younger children; it was very useful in teaching us about leadership. We were teaching the Foundation Children different skills. In the end, because it was raining, we couldn’t use the

school field so we went to Burford Secondary School and used the big Sports Hall.

really enjoyed sharing their skills with the Foundation children.
