A team of Key Stage 2 children entered the Derwentside Athletics Competition held at North Durham Academy. With pupils from over ten schools attending, not only did our team behave brilliantly but they also performed brilliantly on the track and field.
Anna Harrison did a great job running in the 800m race as did Faye Wilson in the 60m sprint. Bethany Shadforth blasted through the 60m hurdles along with Holly Dobinson and Sophie McKie in the 100m relay race. Girls field events included the shot putt, javelin, triple jump and long jump.
The boys team were equally successful with Jacob Davinson getting into the finals of the 60m hurdles. Riley Hutchinson, Andrew Wilkinson, Liam Chatton and Jacob also qualified for the 100m relay final. Aaron McKenzie performed a great triple jump but the stand out result was Riley’s javelin throw which was the longest throw of the day! This means that Riley was the best javelin thrower in all of the schools in Derwentside! He may get the chance to compete against the rest of the County this Summer.
Many thanks to all of the competitors and well done Bloemfontein!
Thank you to Mr Walton for taking the children.
