On Tuesday 13th February, our Year 3/4 athletics team took part in the Oakwood heat of the Nottingham City Indoor Athletics competition.
Some outstanding team work and individual performances, secured an emphatic 1st place finish.
Competing against 6 other schools from across the city, the girls won 5 out of their 6 races, finishing second in the other. The boys won 4 out of their 6 races, finishing second and taking 5th place in the gruelling 6 lap race. In the field events, the team jumped, threw, balanced and bounced their way to some of the highest scores in the afternoon's competition.
A special mention must go to all the Year 3 children who were taking part in a competitive event for the first time. They truly rose to the occasion.
Rico and Frankie from Year 4 receive the outstanding athlete award. They both showed determination and excellent athleticism to help secure the school's first ever 1st place finish in Indoor Athletics.
Also a big thank you to all the parents who came along to watch and support. Roll on the semi final!
