Pupils went on to entertain parents, grandparents and visitors from both the parish council and the RAF base along with Ian Colling, the Headteacher of Magdalen College School, with a series of musical performances including Morris Dancing, country dancing, and the official mascot dance. After the whole school followed the Olympic torch to the village playing field they settled in for an afternoon of Olympic sports.

Winners took part in a podium presentation with medals designed by year four pupil Katie Durno.
