This was a competition which involved whole classes/bubbles of children completing their personal best at 5 athletics activities including a shuttle run, speed bounce, vertical jump, standing long jump and chest push.
Although the events were individual, all the results went together to obtain a team score which was compared to other schools across our Partnership and also the county. We would like to say a huge well done to all the staff and children who undertook this Pentathlon Challenge! A special mention should go to our Partnership winners in each of the age categories;
Year 3/4 winners: St Matthew’s Primary School
Year 5/6 winners: St Matthew’s Primary School
Year 7/8 winners (boys and girls): St Bede’s Inter-Church School
Across the county there were some really high overall team scores so huge congratulations to St Matthew’s Year 3/4 team for finishing 1st in the county and St Laurence for finishing 16th in the county! In the Year 5/6 county competition our winners St Matthew’s came an incredible 1st place and St Laurence came 16th – fantastic work teams!
In the secondary county competition huge congratulations to St Bede’s on their 1st place finish! Perse school finishing in 2nd place! We are so proud of all the schools and children who took part – thank you for your hard work and for representing your school and Partnership so wonderfully!
