District Sports Athletics
In the individual track events bronze medals were won by Abigail Y in the Y3 girls' 50m and Alex J in the Y6 boys' 80m and gold medals were won by Ayomide A in the Y5 boys' 70m, Lewis F in the Y5/6 boys' 800m, Yasmin P in the Y6 girls' 800m and Shian S who broke the district record to win the Y5 girls' 70m. In the individual field events our team picked up more medals, with a bronze for Sophie H in the Y5 girls' triple jump, a silver medal for Toke A in the standing long jump and gold medals for Timi O in the Y3 boys' speed bounce, Sammy K in the Y5 boys' triple jump and gold and a new district record for Tiago A in the Y4 standing long jump. However in the relays our teams dominated, easing through the heats to the finals to put on a display of outstanding teamwork with faultless changeovers. Our Y3, 4 and 5 relay teams won gold and our Y6 relay team won silver. These super individual and relay results meant the whole team came 3rd in the field events competition but we won the track shield and the relay shield. In the final presentation, when pupil roll numbers in Y3 - 6 are used to calculate the result, despite winning more medals than any of the other schools, we missed out by just 1 thousandth of a point on winning the overall shield! Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the teachers who gave up their time to help run the event.
