Year 3/4 Athletics Team Reach City Semi Finals With Record Score!

Yesterday our Year 3/4 Athletics team competed in the second heat of the 2020 Nottingham City Sports Hall Athletics competition.


Going up against seven other schools from Bestwood and the city, the team produced a fantastic performance, winning the heat by 100 points with a school record score of 376! The maximum a team can get is 390!


Many of the team were competing for the first time and despite some initial nerves and a couple of dropped batons they really excelled. The boys won 5 out of their 6 races, whilst the girls won 3 and the team placed no lower than 4th in the remainder. A truly brilliant effort.


In the field events, some really good individual performances were on show and the children scored some of the highest scores out of all the schools taking part in the Balance Test, Speed Bounce and Javelin!


Special mention goes to all the Year 3 children competing for the first time. A absolutely brilliant performance.  


We now look forward to the semi final in March at Harvey Hadden Sports Village.
