Last Monday, our swimming team went along to Belper to compete in the Y5/6 swimming gala once again. All of our year 6s had been along to the competition in the previous year and finished second and so were determined to go one better this year, whilst for the year 5s it was a whole new experience!
Throughout the gala, all of our swimmers performed fantastically, finishing in either 1st or 2nd in their individual and paired races. As we moved into the boys’ and girls’ relays, again we finished second in both races meaning that we knew we had a chance to win the competition! It therefore went down to the final team race to see who would finish as champions – and with every child involved in the race, it was great way to finish!
We led the race from the half-way stage, and there was no catching us from there on in! A fantastic finish to the competition and a huge WELL DONE to all the children. We’d also like to add a BIG thanks to Mrs Palmer for her help on the day.
