Year 5/6 Athletics competition

Today, we took 12 children to Costello school for an athletics tournament. We were facing 6 other schools from our local division. The boys were first up for track events (1, 2 or 3 lengths of the hall). We won every race. While this was happening, the girls were smashing out the field events (long & triple jump, chest throw, javelin, bean bag throw & speed bounce) and really showed how they had taken on board tips and tricks from the practise sessions run by Mr Thompson. 


They then swapped over. The girls had a really tough group, but still managed to win 2 of the running races. While the boys also put in a super effort in less familiar events! Finally they all did some relay races (which we have luckily had lots of practice with) and here they really did do Merton proud.


Overall it was a fabulous afternoon. Their attitude and behaviour was amazing.

And we topped the day off with coming 3rd (by only 2 points) which means we MIGHT be going to the next round for Hampshire!
