With obstacle races, flat races and egg and spoon races, all ages were able to show off their skills to the crowd of family and friends cheering them on.

The morning session saw children in key stage one take to the sports track, while the older children took part in the field sports of javelin and shot.

After lunch, it was the turn of key stage two pupils to get their running shoes on and get track bound.

Throughout the day, while individual winners were recognised with medals, the ultimate aim was to gain points for the team totals.
