Miss Phillips: June 2016
Wrenbury/Sound Primary School, Town Sports:
Wrenbury Primary was very proud to be taking part in this year's Town Sports for the first time, joining forces with Sound Primary School. The competition involved over 20 schools so it was a wonderful opportunity to compete in an athletics competition of this scale. We were put in to Group C along with 10 other schools. Running up to this event, the children practised during PE lessons and were also lucky enough to practise with the children from Sound. This helped with introducing the children to each other and also running through the events and rules with each child/staff. Town Sports is split into two events (field and track). With each child fully prepared and raring to go, we were very excited to be taking part.
Monday 20th June:
On Monday Wrenbury/Sound enjoyed taking part in the field events for the town sports competition, in Crewe. Throughout the evening we took part in Javelin, long jump and high jump. The children did well and tried their best in each event that they were taking part in. Wrenbury did particularly well in the Javelin, we achieved 2nd place in the Year 5 girl's javelin competition.
Well done to all of the children and staff on this day, it ran smoothly and everyone had a great evening.
Wednesday 22nd June:
On Wednesday it was time for the track events. This was the busiest evening of them all. The children enjoyed taking part in a number of events, these included, sprint, relays, bean bag races and hurdles. Again the children were fantastic and Wrenbury had a number of children placed in the events:
For the sprint races, we gained a 2nd place for Year 5 boys and girls.
In the hurdles we received a 3rd place for Year 3 girls and Year 6 girls.
In the bean bag races we won a 1st place for Year 3 boys and a 3rd place for Year 5 boys.
For the final event all of the schools came together to compete against each other in the relay races. The Wrenbury/Sound team were amazing (definitely our strength); the Year 3 girls, Year 5 girls and Year 6 boys relay teams all won 1st place.
Children from Sound Primary School also won various events, including a 1st in the high jump and supporting us winning our 1st places for the relay races.
I know that all of the staff were very happy with how both schools competed and supported each other, to receive as many points as possible for the Wrenbury/Sound team. An extra well done goes to the children that entered more than one event on each evening.
This was a great achievement for all the children from both schools, especially as we were competing against much larger schools. All credit goes to the staff from both schools, parents and most importantly the children, who represented Wrenbury and Sound excellently. Another 'Thank you' must go to Sportscape, who supported us with the training and assisting at the events.
