Friday 4th August
Today at camp was our Lumen Summer Camp Olympics and a fu n day was had by all. Not only did we take part in a range of sporting activities, including a specialist cheer session, but we also spent plenty of time in arts and crafts.
On the field, children competed in a variety of track and field events which included racing over hurdles, working as a team in relay races and launching javelins into the air amongst other events. For some, competition was at the forefront of their minds as they tried their hardest to beat their friends. For others, it was all about taking part and enjoying all that was on offer. Continuing on with the sport theme, a range of football games took place across the day. With teams set to score as many goals as possible, we saw some amazing ball skills from everyone, with some excellent passes and goals, but also some amazing defending and goal keeping.
In the hall, children shook their hands to the music as they learnt some super cheerleading routines. They worked together to pull off some amazing moves, doing well to keep in time to the music whilst remembering what move came next. At the end of the day, lots of children put on a spectacular performance for the rest of us to watch.
No Olympics would be complete without the famous Olympic Torch or a full stadium to cheer on the athletes! In arts and crafts, children created their very own torches and stadiums, putting their own spin on what they thought they should look like. Children also designed their very own medals and laurel crowns that they could wear to show that they had been part of the Lumen Summer Olympics. It was a fantastic day that was enjoyed by everybody!
We are kicking off next week with a super cool and gruesome theme - Horrible Histories!
