Following on from the year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics teams win a couple of months ago today was the day that they got to represent the WHOLE of Erewash at the Derbyshire Final at Queens Park Leisure Centre in Chesterfield. This meant an early start with the bus leaving school at 8 am!!
We arrived and took up our position in the new sports hall and began eyeing up the opposition as they walked in, schools from areas we had never heard of before, we got our game faces on and warmed up so we were fully prepared!
I was immensely proud of all the children that attended the event, they represented the school, Erewash, Ms Godridge & I but more importantly, they represented themselves so well! They gave it their all throughout the competition, putting all their PE lessons and after school practices into pushing themselves.
Even though we did not win and currently haven’t had an invitation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics we had a really enjoyable day and couldn’t have been prouder of your team spirit, enthusiasm, determination and willing when faced with some very talented athletes in Derbyshire. Year 5’s you’d better get practising for next year! 😉
