Today 16 children from Year 5 and 6 were fortunate enough to be picked to take part in the Quadkids Athletics Competition at Little Marlow running track. We were competing against 13 other Year 5 and 6 teams across the area.
The children took part in a 600m race, a vortex howler through, a 75m sprint and standing long jump! We were incredibly proud of how they competed, particularly in the boiling heat and sunshine. They didn’t give up and they pushed themselves to do their very best, even though they were exhausted. They were encouraging each other the whole afternoon and we had superb team spirit.
Out of 15 teams, the Year 5 team came in 12th and the Year 6 team came in 14th – excellent achievements.
Well done in particular to James Woodhead who astounded us with coming first (by a long way) in the 600m race. He sprinted the whole way around and did fantastically! Lizzie Stevens came second, and sped around the track extremely quickly in the girl’s heat too.
All of you should feel incredibly proud that you got picked; you represented Manor Farm impeccably and we had good fun! Well done!
Miss Bartropp and Mr Mills
