In the last week of term I took a team of 12 girls and 12 boys from Year 3 , 4 , 5 & 6 to a Redbridge gymnastics competition . Every child had to learn a floor routine , body management routine and vault . The routines had to be learnt and performed individually in front of a judge and each child completed all 3 phases of the competition which was a huge achievement for each team member. It was a very daunting competition specially for our first timers but they all performed well under a huge amount of pressure . There were 2 competitions within the day , the plate competition & the cup competition .
In the morning competition ( plate ) both teams came 2nd and 3rd out of 12 schools .
In the afternoon competition ( cup ) our Y5/6 team came 3rd out of 14 schools and the Year 3.4 team narrowly missed out on the top 3 positions.
Within all teams there were some fantastic individual scores across all 3 phases of the competition and the team work and encouragement within teams was fantastic . A huge thank you to Kalila , Tommi Jo & Natalie who were helping all of our children through out the day as well as competing themselves .
A huge well done to all of the children who represented our school impeccably and made both myself & Mrs Khan feel very proud .
A fantastic start to the sporting year for JB !
