All the grades get put into teams by the sports teachers however each team are in the same grade.
This year I was in the white team. I had great and athletic people in my team and best of all some of my friends.
On the day of sports day we didn't have any lessons since we were going to be down the field all day so we went down with our teachers got into our positions to start the games. We first were against the yellow team. The game was to hold heavy plastic pipes together and pour the water through the first one to the last one and into the bucket it was a lot of hard work, because if you let go of the the pipes the water can fall out and become less.
In the end we had more water in our bucket and we won!!!!!! Soaking wet with lakes in our shoes, we went on to the next game determined to win again.
The second game was called the caterpillar game where we had to walk in a big piece of fabric. It was fun but kind of hard, the gray team and us tied in that game. Next came another exciting game that looked like fun it was another water game!!!! We had to pass on soaked sponges, and the last person in the line would have to squeeze it out to collect as much water in a bucket. I was passing as fast as I could and at the same time trying not to let lots of water drop from the sponge so we can fill the bucket with more water than the other team (yellow team again) and guess what in the end we DID!!! We won another game!!!! It was an amazing feeling to have won every game till now.
My brother, Hamza, also competed in sports day! He's wearing the red hat.
There were many nice games however I am sharing the ones I had enjoyed most, like the ball game. We all teamed up after a little break of watching the mothers do a race we all teamed up and listened to the instructions of the next game. We were told that we have to each take a hockey stick and try to carry the giant bouncy ball all together, this game was definitely all team work--plain teamwork simply the was the only way we could win if we all worked together. We weren't sure if we won this game because the fourth graders that were playing against us were saying that they won and the coach was saying that we won.
After all the exciting games and entertainment we all gathered to celebrate the day with ice cream.
I hope you enjoyed my blog and I hope you have a great sports day just like me.
