19 children from years 3-6 travelled to Test Valley School on a sunny, if not slightly chilly, Wednesday afternoon. After the children had warmed up with the Sport Leaders the event started with Oscar running in the Year 3 fun run. He ran a very relaxed race smiling his way around the course.
Next followed the competition events with girls and boys from Years 4-6 taking part in consecutive events. Grace, along with Lucy and Flora racing for the year 4s, were the first to compete and did a sterling job. Freddie won Gold for the year 4 boys with George and Sebastien running solid races. We continued on the winning streak with Maddie striding out at the front and bringing in another Gold medal. Then Aaron and Henry ran another Gold, Silver duo exactly as they had done at this event last year!
I was so impressed with the attitude of all of the children that took part in the event. They all ran their hearts out, supported each other and smiled, most of the way round! It was superb to take some new competitors to this event and, for some children, give them the opportunity to represent the school at their first sporting event. You should all be very proud of your achievements for Lockerley Sports Team - well done everyone.
