Primary Schools' Summer Games Final

On Friday 8th July. Forty eight children from Chilcote school represented the school in 6 different Birmingham wide finals. The events were: Cricket, Tag-rugby, Tennis, Golf, Mega fest rugby and Rounders.

The Cricket team were unbeaten in the group stages and got into the final. Unfortunately, they lost the final by only 3 runs. This did mean they finished second in Birmingham though, so an excellent achievement!

The Tag-rugby team did exceptionally well. They only lost one game all day and managed to finish as Birmingham wide champions!!!

The Tennis team only missed out on getting into the final by 2 points having drew 2v2 with the other unbeaten school. They won their other four group games. In their third and fourth place play-off they lost 3v1 in four very close games of tennis. This meant that they finished in fourth place in Birmingham, which is a great result!

The golf children had a thoroughly enjoyable day and managed to finish in sixth place out of eleven schools, so did really well.

The mega-fest event was a non-competitive event but all of the children represented the school excellently in the different games and activities that they had to do.

The rounders children played really well in their group games and won two and lost two of their games. This meant they qualified for the fifth and sixth place play-off. Unfortunately due to time constraints they didn't get to play that game so finished in sixth place, which yet again is a really good achievement!

Well done to all of the children involved in today's events. Every single child has done Chilcote proud with their ability, dedication, motivation, respect and behaviour!!!
