Ascension Day Sports
The St Matthew's School tradition of Ascension Day sports continued this year.
All children take part in the special day which celebrates Jesus's ascension into heaven. The day started with a special worship led by Year 6 in which the children talked about how the day had been organised. Year 6 are traditionally in charge of the activities, promotion and scoring at the sports event. New this year was the introduction of a new competitive element - for the first time, children competed not only against their last year scores, but also for House points.
Year Six children manned each activity and extra points were given for children who demonstrated the school values of friendship and respect. Parents joined the children who were cheered on by adults and the Year Six organisers.
