Quad Kids Athletics 2017
In May 2017 five boys and five girls from year 3/4 competed against 9 other teams at Newent School in the annual Quad Kids Athletic event. The children had to sprint 60 metres, run 400 metres, do a standing long jump and throw a mini howler! Their times and distances were then given points before the team were given a final score. Our team did incredibly well to finish in second place and therefore qualify for the district finals.
At the district finals our team bettered their own score to finish second overall and therefore qualified for the county finals! This was another amazing result as overall 46 schools entered from the Forest of Dean.
In June the county finals took place at Hartpury College. The children had a great day and again bettered their previous score but this time finished in last place of the 10 schools taking part. This didn't matter to the children because they performed incredibly well and were all pleased with how they had run, jumped and thrown. To finish 10th out of all the schools in the county was a fantastic achievement!
