Track & Field
On Monday 25th June we set off, after a hard day at school, for the District Field Events at Sandcross school. It was our first ever event of this nature and we were very excited. We had to throw balls as far as we could and some of us took part in the long jump. There were 13 schools in total.
We truly excelled and achieved firsts from Connor and Evie in the long jump, with Layla and Leo achieving a 3rd place. Sanjana also came first in the ball throwing, with Eva coming second . There was fierce competition and Sid and Fletcher threw as far as they could but unfortunately were not placed.
The children behaved wonderfully and were a credit to their school.
What an amazing event!
On Tuesday 26th June, in the soaring heat, gazebos in hand, we set off to RGS Hartswood playing fields. We took 26 of our best athletes from Years 3 and 4. We quickly set up our camp in the shade and then the races started.
Daisy won her race, 50 metres sprint, Devonte then came second in the boys 50 metres. In the Year 3 event Evie came a close third. Could it get any better? Yes! In the 300metres Connor breezed to first place then Summer came 3rd in the Year 3 event. Our year 3 girls came third in the relay as did our Year 4 boys. In our other events we were just outside the placings but we showed resilience and co-operation throughout the event.
Congratulations to everyone concerned for their fantastic achievements.
