Quadkids Superstars

Congratulations to the Year 1 team and the Year 6 team who took part in the South Oxfordshire Quadkids competition. Quadkids comprises four athletics events (two track and two field). Children were able to practise each event in our PE lessons.

The events are:

a standing long jump

a vortex throw

a sprint

a middle distance run

Both year groups had sessions practising technique and then they competed in isolation. We measured their throws and jumps and timed their sprints and distance runs. It was unusual to be competing without seeing the opposition. Because of this we had no idea how they had done compared to all the other children taking part.

The results came through yesterday and were a lovely surprise for the end of another enjoyable and successful sporting year for Nettlebed.

The Year 6 team were the runners up in their competition, with Olly as the top scoring boy.

The Year 1 team were the winners! Issy was the top scoring girl.

What an excellent effort by all the children who took part. Well done all of you!
