On Thursday 22nd January Yr 5/6 entered an Athletics Competition. This took place at Greenford High School, we left school at 11.45 to arrive there for 12.15. The children that were part of the Athletics team were: Luke Alleyne (5o) Nathan Williams (6C) Renato Kucaj (6M) Joseph Rodgers (6C) Fenn Murphy (6M) Leo Zammitt (6M) Liv Almeida (6C) Nellie Hodgson (6C) Paulina Liszka (6C) Anastasia Maljkovic (6M) Isabelle Haran (5o) and Myself Emily (6M)
When we arrived we went to do our field events. They were: Speed bounce, Soft javelin, Vertical jump, triple jump, standing long jump and chest push. All the children did very well in their events coming in the top 3 of each field event. When we had finished the field events the organisers set up the events for the track events which included: 1 + 1 relay, 2 + 2 relay , 6 lap Parleuff, 4 X 1 relay, over and under relay and Obstacle relay. In each of the race we competed very well and managed to come 1st or 2nd in each race. We were exhausted after all those events.
We then were asked to sit down and wait to find out the results. We were all very excited about finding out the results as we believed we did very well. The Organisers then read out the results and we came 1st , Grange 2nd and North Ealing 3rd. We went up to receive our medals and all the other schools clapped for us.
We were then told that we would be competing in the borough playoffs where we competed very well and came 3rd in the whole Ealing Borough. We are extremely proud of this as there are a lot of schools in the borough of Ealing.
We would like to thank all the parents who helped to provide a lift to and from the venue and would also like to thank Coach Brown and Mr Grear for all their coaching and advice for this fantastic competition.
