NED Summer Sports Festival

New to our sports calendar this year was a North East Derbyshire Summer Fest at the English Institute of sport. This event promoted key values from the World Athletics Championships as well as giving the children an opportunity to try different activities including lots of inclusive sports.


At the beginning of the day, we had an opening ceremony where the children lined up with the front person holding a flag and another carrying a clear box (just like they do at all the athletics track events).


We had a great day and the children were really enthusiastic about collecting stickers for our values chart when they demonstrated great sportsmanship. They also got to write a postcard to the athletes who are attending the World Athletics Championships this year to wish them luck.

Just before the closing ceremony, the children got the opportunity to run around the running track so they can now say they have run on the same track as Jessica Ennis!
