On Thursday 1st February a group of Year 5/6 children entered the Sports Hall Athletics Competition at Wantage Leisure Centre against 7 other local schools from the Vale of White Horse. It was an action packed afternoon of track and field events held in the main sports hall. Children competed in : relays , 6 lap Parluuf, obstacle courses, long jump, triple jump and many more. The competition culminated in the javelin and fast-paced 4 x 1 relay.
Our Millbrook children showed many of our school values over the course of the afternoon and we were particularly impressed by the unity and cooperation shown by every member of the team.
After a nail-biting wait, the scores were calculated and Millbrook was announced as the winning team.
So congratulations to : Josh, Sam, Charlie, Max, Matthew, Oliver, Tommy, Riley, Charlie, Jayden, Lauren, Lilly, Erin, Freya, Emma, Charlotte, Maizey, Ella, Isla and Amelia. On behalf of all of the children, we would like to thanks Chris Dowling for him help and support in coaching us in each of the different areas!
We will now have to wait for the 8 schools in West Oxfordshire District to compete next week before we can see if we made it through to the next round of the competition.
