Deanery Athletics

Lesson: Physical education

Class: Year 3 Robins Year: 2018 - 2019

Monday was once again the traditional Deanery Athletics tournament with other local schools. We were defending champions from last year, so we had worked hard in the hope to retain the trophies we won. 

It started so well with the sack race. We had several race wins with Jonnie, George and Zach and a strong second place finish from Freya. 

In the field events - throwing and long jump - we had some success. Harry in Year 4 smashed it with a huge throw. Sam and Amelia performed strongly with second place finishes. Our only win in the long jump was with Josh, but James in Year 5 did well with a second place and Amelia had a third place finish. 

We improved on last year's results in the sprint. We had 3 winners - Harriet in Year 3, Harry in Year 4 and Emily in Year 6. 

Last year we were the Long Distance champions so hopes were once again high. Cian led for most of the race and finished in a strong fifth and James had a kick to the finish to place sixth. For Year 3 and 4 boys Josh ran a text book race and won and Rhys in Year 3 was incredible and pushed through the line in ninth. For the girls, Mimi was immense and never looked like losing with a first place finish; and hot on her heels was Harriet in fourth. For Year 5 and 6 Emily had yet another strong race and kicked on for the line to finish second. And it bodes well for next year as Lexi came in ninth and is only in Year 5! 

We finished with the relay and we had strong performances with the boys finishing second and the girls third. 

And so to the trophies! We won the team sack trophy and we were thrilled to retain the long distance trophy. It was a tense wait to see who won the overall trophy. It was so tight, but it was second for Farndon with 148 points this year. Bickerton managed to reverse last year's result and won by 6 pojnts, scoring 154 points. 

Another amazing performance. We were really proud of our whole team who gave it everything! In the last 3 years is has been runners up twice and winnners once. Well done everyone.
