This afternoon, Earl Soham took two teams to the 'Quadkids' Athletics Event at Hartismere High School. Each team was made up of five boys and five girls, with everyone competing in four events - 600m run, 75m sprint, standing long jump and 'vortex' throw. Individuals scored points for their team depending on the times and distances they achieved. Each team's scores were then added up to decide on the overall team result.
Both teams did themselves proud. One team finished fourth, narrowly missing out on a bronze medal - however, many of these were Year 5 children so the experience will really benefit them next year. The other team ended the event as 'champions' meaning that they have qualified for the Suffolk finals on July 6th at Bury St. Edmunds.
It may have been a chilly afternoon, but the efforts and smiles of all 20 of you warmed our hearts - very well done!
