Olympic sports day at Happy Tots Nursery, Barrow
Last updated at 13:33, Friday, 20 July 2012
YOUNGSTERS at Happy Tots Day Nursery put in a gold medal-worthy performance when they took part in an Olympic-themed sports day.
Family and friends turned out at the Hoops Basketball Centre in Barrow to cheer on the three and four-year-olds as they marked the final week of term.
The event began with a parade featuring the children marching with special Olympic torches they had created in the lead up to the day.
They then competed in sack races, egg and spoon races, bean bag races and running races.
Nursery nurse Charlotte Denby said the day was one of a series of events leading up to the older children’s graduation.
She said although the children were too young to understand the magnitude of the upcoming London Olympics, they understood it was something special.
“They’ve heard their mums and dads speaking about it and we were talking to them about it while we were making the torches,” she said.
“It helps them understand why we’re doing it, as well as keeping them healthy and fit.”
The Abbey Road nursery held its graduation on Thursday, with about half of its 85 children moving on to school later in the year.
