OYM Day 1–Making The Team

Story – Jesus calls his disciples

Craft – making sportspeople



A trio of great cyclists – Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Lizzie Armitstead.

Below, a rower -  is this Heather Stanning?

And one very cheerful golfer – I think it is Rory McIlroy


Here’s a diver and a swimmer – Tom Daley and Rebecca Adlington – I love the way she is coming up out of the water, don’t you?



No idea why this footballer has three balls – unless two of the pompoms are his feet! Apparently it is meant to be David Beckham.Two children decided to make weightlifters – but with very different sets of weights – I think the one on the left is Zoe Smith, and on the right Peter Kirkbride



Is this pole vaulter Steven Lewis?

I am amazed by the creativity of the children producing these different sportspeople from a load of bottle tops and pipecleaners.

DSCF4253The youngest group were even more creative – using the CDs [intended to be the ‘mount’] as part of the model.

Well done to all the kids – and thanks to the staff too for helping. Altogether Day One has been remarkably successful and everyone appeared to be going home Very Happily.
