Yesterday our year 5/6 Athletics team took part in the second semi-final of the Nottingham City Primary Sportshall Athletics at Harvey Hadden Sports Village.
Up against six other schools from across the city, the team responded well to the increased competition. Winning or placing second in several races. A very strong showing in the field events still wasn't enough to secure a spot in the grand final. When the final results were read out, the team had finished fifth.
Out of 78 schools in the city able to enter, the fact we are still making the top ten year in, year out speaks volumes to the ability and commitment of the children. We do indeed have some very sparkly athletes.
A very special mention goes to our three Year 4 girls, Lily Hunter, Pharen Boulter Davis and Millie Norman competing against girls two and three years older and showing no signs of of being overawed. Brilliant work girls!
As always a big thank you to all the parents and family members who came along and supported the team.
