On Thursday 5th July, our Year 4/5 Athletics team took part in the annual Oakwood Academy Olympic Cup.
Competing against 7 other local schools, the team took 1st place by a massive twenty points! In the 8 field events, the school finished top in 7 and 2nd in the other. In the track events, several first or second places cemented the team's lead from the morning events.
A real team effort and spirit was evident throughout the day, particularly in the morning when all 30 children participated in the field events.
A special mention must go to Scarlett Orange from Marvellous maples for her effort in the shot putt. Scarlett threw the furthest out off all 240 children competing! All the children participating in competition for the first time did themselves and the school proud.
Congratulations and well done.
