Silver Medal Winners!
On Tuesday a group of eight year 5/6 children, 4 boys and 4 girls, represented Great Binfields in 'The Quad Kids Athletics Competition' at The Vyne School. Each child had to compete in four individual events; standing long jump, the howler throw, a 75m sprint and a 600m run. They scored points according to their times and distances. The athletes battled hard against the windy weather conditions to compete against seven other schools. Their points were then added together as a team. All the children performed brilliantly. A massive well done to Hugh for throwing the second furthest in the whole competition and for winning his heat (33.10m), Isla for running the 600m in 2 minutes 19 seconds, winning her heat and coming second overall, and Jett who actually jumped the furthest in the whole competition (1.91m) for the boys! After coming second in the relay, our points were then added together to an amazing total of 1243 to claim a silver medal. I am incredibly proud of all the children who worked so hard as a team and represented the school perfectly.
