3 consecutive wins in 3 weeks!
As many of you already know, a couple of weeks ago, Lockerley Kwik cricket team secured our first win at the Kwik cricket festival at Normal Court.
Last week 11 children went to West Tytherley to participate in the Area rounders competition. We started well with a victory and with Mr Williams there to coach the children into the best fielding spots we soon established a successful team. There was some excellent bowling and fielding not to mention batting, including a final trick shot rounder from Jack, which secured us victory in 5 out of the 6 matches and we were feeling slightly confident. We waited nervously for the results and were ecstatic when we were announced as the winners!
Yesterday 16 children from across years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to compete at King's Somborne for the Area Athletics. Years 3 and 4 started with the track events outshining many of the other schools with their speed on the race track and securing numerous race wins. After the sprints they each completed a 300m longer distance run and again competed excellently.
Whilst the track events were happening, year 5 and 6 were competing in the field events; standing long jump, tennis ball throw and chest push. James managed to set a record with the tennis ball throw reaching a distance just shy of 38m! They then swapped over. Year 5 and 6 had much stiffer competition in the track events, but we still secured a number of wins. In the field events Aaron managed to jump 1.84m - not bad for a year 3! Once they had swapped over and completed all the events each year group selected 4 competitors to take part in a 4x300m relay, just for fun. Year 3 and 4 absolutely smashed the race with a clear victory.
I was so proud to accompany the children to the last 2 events and was astounded by the performances of all the children. We clearly have some extremely talented atheletes in our midst and I look forward to seeing these children progress. As always our sportsmanship and teamwork stood out above everyone else.
Well done Lockerley School, awesome performance!
