The half-term ended in great excitement with the much anticipated Mascot Race. Each class was represented by their class mascot and they were joined by the Tiger from the Tea Party who had been training after school each day this week on the playground. A tough course was set and the children were in fine voice as the characters had to conquer obstacles, score basketball hoops, complete a Maths challenge, dance round their handbags and scoot to the finish line. In an all action event the race mirrored the Hare and Tortoise fable as the Tiger took an early lead (through cheating) but became a little arrogant near the finish line and ended up coming last. Congratulations to all the mascots that took part and each one was given a pack of class mascot badges that will become this year's rewards for those children that read regularly at home.
All lined up. Ready Steady Go!
Who will get it in the net first?
How did that tiger get there first?
I'm sure my dance is so much better than yours
Racing to the finish line
Finished at last. Need to have a rest.
Hang on, I think there may have been some cheating!!
It never pays to cheat. Tiger you are fired!!
