SPORTS days have come a long way since the days of the egg and spoon race, as infants at Filey Junior School found out.

The school teamed up with community sports coaches to deliver activities including Brazilian soccer, golf and rugby.

Filey Junior Scgool held it's infant sports day in the school grounds. Trained sports leaders were on hand to guide them through the games with help from Filey Junior School pupils acting as leaders along with representatives from Filey Senior School Picture Dave Kettlewell. 112464'17/06/11

Event organiser Jo Bowman, of the School Sport Partnership, said the event was well received with children trying out various new sports.

She said: “We held a multi-sports festival at Filey Junior School for almost 200 infant pupils. The day was supported by Year 10 sports leaders from Filey Secondary School and Year 6 leaders from Filey Junior School.

“All those involved had a great time and were introduced to a range of new activities.”

On the day, children rotated around seven activities: tennis with Ben Atkinson and Adam Tildsley; rugby with Tom Harrison; Brazilian soccer skills with Kyle Surrey and Dan Locke; cricket with Jake McAleese and golf with Adam Jackson.

Jo Bowman also wished to thank Filey Junior School for hosting the event and all the coaches and sport leaders “for an excellent day”.
