Sports Day 2016

This year, Newham Bridge have been celebrating the 2016 Rio Olympic games. This came to a finale on Wednesday 6th July when the children hosted their very own Olympic Games at Middlesbrough Sports Village. The children took part in a parade, which they had made their own props and costumes for, 8 sporting events to compete for the house cup and sprint and relay races to finish the day!

All children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, taking part in activities which challenged their skills. Following the 8 sporting events SATURN were the overall winners for the day and received the house trophy.

All children received a taking part medal to finish the day and individual sprint winners claimed a trophy each.  A big thank you to all of the children, staff and parents for making the day so enjoyable for everyone!
