Day 2 of PotatOlympics was just as exciting as Day 1. Please read below and watch the videos of our events:

High Jump: in this event, potatoes had to work hard to jump off a mini-trampoline and above a certain height…

Hot Potato – where a potato had to be bounced as many times as possible:

Potato Roll: where accuracy counts just as much as the power you put into your roll…

Spud Drop: a very elaborate set up where potatoes, sitting atop a five-bucket pyramid, had to be brought down the contraption by the hit of a soft ball, before falling to the ground, where the distance between their resting spot and their initial position was measured. Longest distance won.

Chip Slider: How fast a spud slides is measured… the fastest slider wins.

Potato race: an exciting race in the sand, featuring a tricky tunnel to get through! Fastest spud wins the race!

Potato Launch – perhaps THE most exciting event – definitely one that needed us to step up the safety measures. Helmets required for all operators and a safe distance for all. The spud that stayed the longest time in the air won this event.

Potato Throw: a very challenging event that closed the games…

On Friday, the students celebrated with a delicious potato bake, before concluding the PotatOlympics with a medal ceremony that was a fun-filled occasion enjoyed by all. Next week, the students will use their data to produce a range of averages and graphs in Maths.

P.S. For those of you who wonder… our lovely spudlethes were not in a great condition by the end, but we thank Thomas Shepherd for taking them to a lovely planting place for us…
