Future Olympic stars!

Last weekend a group of keen athletes competed at Lee Valley along with around 300 other children.  Our team consisted of Martha, Imogen, Aimee and Eloise for the Yr 5s and Harry, Harrison and Elsa for the Yr 3s.

The children did us very proud. They were focused and well-behaved. They cheered each other on and supported each other when the result weren't as good as they hoped. 

We had some really great results: Martha won her 60m heat is a superb time of 9.81, Imogen had the second fastest time in the 600m, Elsa came 2nd in the long jump. 

The format of the event is a Minithon so the children took part in 3 events - points were awarded for each event. The first 10 children in each year group were awarded a gold medal, the next 10 got silver and everyone else got gold. 

All the year 3s achieved a Gold medal. For the year 5s Martha got a Silver and the rest were Bronze.
