Our Junior gymnastics squad took part in a competition against ten other local schools, at Stoke Mandeville stadium in Aylesbury last week. A year 3/4 squad and a year 5/6 squad performed in two rounds each: The ‘vault; and either ‘floor’ or ‘body conditioning’ routines. The children performed admirably, against some tough competition. Our year3/4 squad achieved sixth place and our year 5/6 squad eighth place.
This is the first year we have entered this competition and our athletes demonstrated both a competitive spirit and supportive attitudes towards each other. Well done and congratulations to all who took part in this memorable day.
A special mention needs to go to Calli who volunteered to step in from the subs bench, to support a friend suffering from an attack of the nerves.
