In the afternoon the entire school participated in a fun day playing the sports children played when the school first opened.
Games included Annie Over, where two teams line up opposite each other with a barrier in between them. When Annie is called out, a person throws the ball to the other team. If they don't catch it they throw it back to someone on the other team.
When some one catches it, the teams switch sides really fast, and the person with the ball tries to hit someone on the other team so they have to swap teams. The game continues until one team is out.
Another game was Red Rover. You need two teams which take turns calling out "Red Rover, Red Rover, let (childs name) come over!" That child leaves their team's line, runs as fast as they can toward the other line, and tires to break through the held hands. If they break through they get to take someone back to their team. If they don't, they join the new team. When a team only has one person left, that person tries to break through the other team. If they don't, then their team loses. If they do, they gain a player and play continues.
You can't forget :Rolling the Hoop". To win the race you need to spin it to the end without stopping or letting the hoop fall.
Team handball was another popular game played by children over 100 years ago.
