On Tuesday night, our year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics team went along to Alfreton Leisure Centre hoping to win the competition and be the first Codnor Y5/6 Champions in the event.
They would first compete in field events of Chest Push Throw, Standing Long Jump and Speed Bounce. Our children performed brilliantly in all of these events with many personal bests - 2 of our children jumping over 2 metres in the Standing Long Jump which was outstanding!
After the field events we moved on to the relays, with both teams performing brilliantly in the obstacle relay - the boys finishing 1st and girls 2nd. In the hurdle race the boys finished 3rd and the girls 2nd again to keep up the good results. In our final competitive race of the night, the sprint, the boys again won their race with the girls finishing 4th leaving us with a great chance of being in the top 3.
When it was announced we had finished 1st, the children, staff and parents were delighted with the result! Many of them have worked hard for this event and it was a culmination of many years' effort as some of the children have competed in the event for 4/5 years in a row!
An amazing achievement for some amazing children. You have done yourselves and the school really proud. Well done to all involved!
