We had sports day today, and even though the weather wasn't ideal, we made it work. Today was sports day and it was pretty fun. We went over the team anthem for a little bit till 9:00 am and We were off! It went something like this, “We’re number one, not two, not three, not four. We’re gonna win, not lose, not tie the score. We’re gonna prove them wrong. Green and blue, yellow and red and win too. Gooooooooo PLGS! [Team Name] decided. Oink oink oink!” I personally thought that this anthem is actually really laughable, but three grade 6 girls came up with it, and I had no choice so… It had to do. Well, after everyone sang their songs, We went to our stations to play the minigames. They were not even CLOSE to the sports days before, but it was the best they could do. First off, We had a minigame where we had a small cup, and a huge bucket of water everyone shared. Our own team (pink) was split into 4 small teams, and we got some water with the cup, spun around a circle 5 times, then ran to the smaller bucket, and dumped the water. We do this for 30 min, and whoever gets the most water wins, and my team won this one. After this, we did a game where we have one of these balls that you bounce with, go forward, go around the place three times, and go back. We do this for about another half hour, and we move on to the next station. The next station was solely based on spiny paths. It was Everybody Is It, but with pool noodles. After this, we went inside for a 50 min break. During that break, we watched Peppa Pig. But most of us did not watch it and did our own things. For instance, my 3 other friends and I played a card game. After we had our short break, it was lunch. We got our pizza first, and then popsicles for a snack. It was delicious! After that, we had a recess period and went back to sports day. The last two sports were lifting the mats over the “water”, and scooters. The fourth was very fun, and so was the fifth. At the end of the day, even though the weather didn’t agree with us, we still made it work and everyone still enjoyed it.

We will win without a doubt! Goooooooo~ THUNDER!!! Then we went outside to play for 1 hour, when we were done playing outside, we went inside, then watched “Inside Out”. Then we cleaned up the classroom and school is over!
