Billesley Primary School
July 13th 2013
We began our first year working with Billesley Primary School with The Marble Run, in which we created a huge marble run which travelled around the whole building. We wanted to end our first year with a project that would similarly involve the whole school and have a big impact. So we thought we would have a go at contributing to Sports Day. The school already had some fantastic races and challenges lined up so we didn't feel that we could add anything there. But it being such a huge sporting occasion we realised it was the perfect event for The Commentators.
Before the big day Ana Rutter worked with Year One to create designs for banners for each of the school's house teams to carry into the arena. We dressed the sports ground with bunting, polished the cup and all the competitors had a dash of face paint to match the colour of their house team. The weather was kind and the day was full of personal achievement, teamwork and fun. The Commentators skills were stretched to their limit as they had never commentated on a bean bag relay or obstacle course before. They interviewed the athletes during the day to learn about their training regimes and their progress through the events and chatted to proud parents.
The day ended with the presentation of The Billesely Perennial Cup to the winning house team and a banner procession back to school.
Commentators: Graeme Rose and Craig Stephens
