This afternoon, a group of Year 5 and 6 children represented the school in Daventry in the South Northants District Sportshall Athletics competition. This is a particular favourite on the sporting calendar as it allows for a larger number of children to participate and represent their school as well as competing in a range of running, throwing and jumping events.
The event sees two competitions running concurrently (boys on track and girls on field and then vice-versa) and then the scores from both are added together to give a combined score. Of the 20 competitors from Woodland View, each and every child showed amazing determination, sportsmanship and teamwork in each and every event. It was lovely to see children cheering and encouraging their peers throughout and giving them such outstanding support. After placing 1st in 9 of their 13 races (and 2nd in an additional 3), Woodland View finished second with an incredible second place finish overall out of 16 other schools!
This now means that this squad will go on to represent South Northants in the County Games Finals in Kettering in February! We look forward to seeing how successful they can be at this event later on in the year!
