Summer Games Finals Day

On Friday 13th July eleven Year 5 children and ten Year 4 children represented Chilcote at founders and super 4s athletics respectively, at the Summer Games Finals day. The finals were held at King Edwards School.

Both teams had won the local Kings Heath Partnership tournament in their respective sports and were facing the other area winners from around Birmingham.

The rounders team were one of eleven schools to have qualified. They were put into a group of six and had to play each of those schools once. They lost their first two matches, won the third and then narrowly lost the fourth and fifth. This ,want that they finished in 4th place in their group and finished in 9th place overall. A fantastic achievement by the children - well done to all!!!

The super 4s athletics team were one of 31 schools who qualified for the finals (the top 3 schools from each area qualified). Each child from Chilcote had to perform a standing long jump, a sprint, a long distance run (400m), a javelin throw and finally they ran a relay race as a team. All of the children did their best and performed very well. When they had done everything their distances and times were converted to points as a team. Chilcote finished on 1279 points and in tenth place overall, which was only 100 points off third place. A remarkable achievement - well done to all of the children!!!

All of the children represented the school brilliantly well and as usual their sportsmanship and behaviour were impeccable! Well done all!!!
