AN AGRICULTURAL inspired sports day had youngsters teaming with excitement ahead of their next school field trip.

Overdale foundation class pupils, aged three to five years, laced up for a fun afternoon of events, with a more unusual take on the egg and spoon and dress-up races.

Teacher Julie Dixon said: “It went really well, we had a good turn out from the parents. We had a farm theme and called it Farmyard Antics because we’re going to Cruckley Farm next week.

“There were four races; eggs in a basket, silly scarecrows where they had to dress up as they raced, putting wheels on the tractor and potato dig.”

Miss Dixon added that the children were now all geared up for their visit to the Driffield’s animal farm. She added: “The children really enjoyed it, they had a fabulous time.”
