write five sentences about sports day in your school
This year our school sports day was held on Friday. There were seven booths at the sports ground. Our class planned in advance how to decorate our booth. We wanted to win the first prize for the best-decorated booth so I helped my classmates to decorate our booth in a spectacular manner.
Around 1:30 pm, the sports days were declared open by the Guest-of-Honour – our local Member of Parliament. All the students taking part in the sports day lined up for the march past.
We marched past the stand where the Guest-of-Honour and our headmaster stood to attention. As we marched past, he took the salute. The day started with track events. There were 50, 100, and 200 meters races.
There was tremendous applause from the spectators which included teachers and parents. Then the field events – tug of war, long jump, high jump, shot put and discus were held. Every event drew cheers and applause from the spectators. The sports day turned out to be the grandest day of the year for the school.
The day went by very fast. I came in first in the long jump event, and second in the 100 meters race and shot put. At about five o’clock, our Guest-of-Honour gave away the trophies to the winners. My class was overall runners-up. We were also awarded the first prize for the best-decorated booth.
After that, to mark the end of the sports meet, there was another march past. The national anthem was played to close the sports day. We went home tired but happy.
