Last Wednesday, a team of 42 Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children competed at the District Sports Athletics competition at the David Weir Sports Centre. This competition was against lots of different schools from our half of the borough in sprinting and relay events. The sprints (over 100m, with a 200m distance for Year 6!) and the relays (all the way round the 400m track in teams of 4) counted towards the schools' points, while there were also throwing and jumping events to try if the children wanted to. We particularly enjoyed the long jump! The children were well behaved and supportive of each other all afternoon, despite the heat! Lots of children managed to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their sprint heat whilst the Year 6 boys relay did particularly well. Ewan, Jake, Cam, Jayden and Keiran managed to win the overall final for the Year 6 boys and were awarded with a large shield! They were a particularly strong team and a special mention must go to Ewan who allowed Keiran to run in the final event, in order to share the award with him too. Well done boys and well done also to all of the rest of the children who competed.
