Cooper Family Yr 5/6 G&T Sportshall Athletics

The Cooper School hosted the Year 5 & 6 G & T Sportshall Athletics event with pupils from Fringford, Glory Farm, Launton and Burepark showing off their athletics skills.

The schools were welcomed by the sports leaders who immediately started warming the children up in preparation for the events. During the warm up the children had the opportunity of trying out some of the obstacles in preparation for the events. The Games School Value was passion and this was clearly shown by the enthusiasm and competiveness when the children were taking part, as well as all the cheering for the athletes. The morning was started with the obstacle relays, followed by the field events and finally the sprint relays. During the field events there was a tremendous amount of concentration, because the noise level had dropped, creating calmness in the sportshall. The sprint relays the roof was lifted especially in one of the boys’ races when the leading team kept changing due to different changeover strategies.

Burepark were convincing winners, followed by Glory Farm taking 2nd spot by 6 points from Launton in 3rd and Fringford in 4th. I would like to wish Burepark the best of luck in the next round. A big thank you to our sports leader, 6 form sports leaders and Steve Flynn from Bicester Athletics Club.
