Bicester Family Quadkids

The annual Year 3/4 and 5/6 Quadkids Athletics competitions for the Bicester Family of Primary Schools took place on Tuesday 21st June.  The event was re-arranged from the previous week which was rained off.  Despite this, there were still one hundred and seventy-five children taking part in the event.  Thirteen teams contested the Year 3/4 competition and six teams competed in the Year 5/6 competition from seven Primary Schools including Kings Meadow, Chesterton, Bure Park, Five Acres, Fritwell, St. Edburg’s and Brookside. A team of forty Bicester School Sport leaders from Year 7-10, PE and North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership staff and Bicester Athletics coaches supported and officiated at the event.

The Quadkids format enables children of primary school age to have fun participating in the core disciplines of running, jumping and throwing. All athletes completed a quadrathlon, competing in four events; the sprint over 75 metres or 50 metres, the run over 600 metres or 400 metres, the standing long jump and the vortex howler throw. Results were recorded and totalled to find the best all-round athletes and teams. The children had a great time and there were some high quality performances

During the competitions, the Spirit of the Games value of determination was a focus area and a young athlete from each team was presented with a special certificate to recognise the high level of determination they had shown.

Congratulations to Brookside who took the team honours in the Year 3/4 competition, closely followed by Fritwell who took runners-up spot. Kings Meadow A were victorious in the Year 5/6 competition with Five Acres taking runners-up spot.  In addition congratulations to the individual winners; Harrison (St. Edburg’s) and Holly (Brookside) in the Year 3/4 competition and Devon (Brookside) and Lucia (Five Acres) in the Year 5/6 competition.  The first and second placed teams and the first three girls and boys in each age group have qualified for the North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership Quadkids Final which will take place on Friday 1st July at The Cooper School.
