Biathlon Team at Schools’ Challenge – Friday 28th October 2016

It may be half term but our Biathlon Team has been in action at the Schools’ Biathlon Challenge today, coached and accompanied by Mrs Saunders.  Harry, Daisy and Henry all took part in the challenge which was held at Harvey Hadden sports village in Nottingham. The children all had to complete a timed 800m run on the track and a 50m swim in the pool.  The scores for both events were added together for an overall total.  Some of the fastest ranked children throughout the country will then be invited to compete at Crystal Palace next March (we don’t find out who until December 16th).  There were no medals for our team today, but a tremendous effort from all involved.

Thank you to Kitty and all of the adult supporters for their cheering and encouragement.  As the only teacher who gave the event a try, Mrs Saunders managed to come first!!  We’re not sure if this is allowed…
