Area Sports Day

16th June 2022
27 children from year 3 - 6 participated in the Area Sports Day which is an event organised by both Uffculme and Cullompton and includes school from both clusters of schools. The day was organised into field and track events with different children competing in each different event. Highlights included: Felix achieving one of the longest long jumps of the day with a distance 3m 60cm; Liam showing everyone how to run and skip at the same time, Ruby, Annabel and Zoe running amongst the Year 6s in an open 800m race; and also the obstacle course event which saw both the Y3/4 and the Y5/6 teams finish victorious!
Overall, Sampford finished a respectable 3rd. Which, considering that we were included in the 'Big Schools' was a fantastic achievement - Willand (who finished 2nd) have over 400 pupils and Uffculme (who finished 1st) have over 200.
A big well done to all of the children who participated; it was a really enjoyable day which saw all of the children in the team encourage and support each other and they all tried their very best in every event.
