Today the Year 3 & 4 Sports Hall Athletics squad competed in the Lewisham Borough Finals.
Events included the Speed Bounce, Soft Javelin, Standing Long Jump, Five Strides, Vertical Jump and Chest Push. Children also participated in relay races. Some of these involved tackling tricky obstacles such as hurdles, tunnels and steps and others that focused on sprint speed.
Children enjoyed having a go at a wide range of activities and supported each other among the team. We were very proud to be awarded with the competitions Respect the Games Award which the other school had nominated us to win for showing good sportsmanship, respect and determination.
Well done to Clinton in Year 4 who was chosen as one of the competitions oath readers. He received a medal for doing such a wonderful job.
Rathfern came in 3rd place, with just two points separating 2nd and 3rd. The team received bronze certificates for their efforts. Once the other 10 school have had chance to compete in the competition, we will discover the overall medal positions.
