Sportshall Athletics 4th April 2017

On Tuesday 4th April 2017, the sportshall athletics team took part in the Oxfordshire School Games County Final at Leys Pools and Leisure Centre.

The team took part in various sporthall races working together in replay formats with either 4 or 2 runners. The children also took part in field events such as foam javelin, chest push, speed bounce, vertical jump, long jump and triple jump.

At the end of the morning there was an area race with one boy and girl from each of the vale schools to make a team of 4. Rachel and Alfie were chosen to represent the team from Wantage.
Everyone tried their hardest showing great determination and the team finally finished in 9th place just ahead of Millbrook who were also representing the Vale.

A special thank you to all the children who gave a day of their Easter holiday to represent the Vale and our school. Also a special thank you to Oakley and Alfie from year 4 for stepping in at the last minute to complete the team.
