Tournament Result – Monday 3rd October – Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Heats
Yesterday morning saw the first athletics event of the 2016-17 academic year occur, with our Y5/6 pupils competing in the local heats at Ellis Guilford. As is usual for these events, a sizeable number of children were given the opportunity to represent their school – with teams consisting of eleven boys and eleven girls.
The Sportshall Athletics tournaments are a real showcase of a multitude of skills, with this year's heats being of a particularly high standard. Although Whitemoor did incredibly well and won a number of races, we didn't manage to finish in a qualifying position for the semi-finals.
However, the perseverance of the team was commendable and all were happy to have taken part. Also, for our Year 5 pupils, June's Quad Athletics event will offer chance to better their efforts from today.
The Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics team were: Jordan C, Natasha C, Tino C, Amarion A, Ciara S, Roche M, Millie E, Olivia G, Mille G, Amirah A, Jessica S, Sharnaiya M, Jayden R, Castel B, Brian D, Romario L, Mason T, Mason N, Kamara J, Megan N, Carnell T and Neyara R.
