EDSP Year 5/6 Swimming Gala
A team of 8 swimmers represented the school fantastically during the recent Year 5/6 Swimming Gala. Children competed against 8 other schools from across the local learning community. The events including: freestyle, back stroke, breaststroke, a relay and an obstacle relay. Each race was 25 metres in length. It was great to see the levels of perseverance and determination from all swimmers. A special mention to Leo and Lottie who as Year 4s were competing against much older children - well done!
As part of the Axe Valley Sports Partnership children attended a High Fives Netball competition. Our team competed against children from Seaton and Kilmington, playing 4 matches in all. Considering this was the first time the children had played together they did very well. They demonstrated great teamwork and enhanced their passing and receiving skills. Sadly, we didn't qualify for the next stage.
As part of the East Devon Sports Partnership a team of 8 children travelled to Bicton College to compete against 20 other schools. Firstly children took part in a time trail event in order to rank the children. Then there were 4 seeded races based on the children's time and where they had to race around the track for ten minutes. The whole team were fantastic, they never gave up, supported each other and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
