Quad Kids - A team report

Quad Kids - A team report (nugget)

On Tuesday 16th July 2019 three teams from Westfield took part in a sports event called Quad Kids at St Ivo Outdoor Centre. I was the A team.

The first activity that the A team took part in was the standing long jump. Cian  got the highest jump with 2 meters  but everybody else was really close to his score and got lots of points for the team.

The next activity for the A team was the long distance(600 meters). A lap and a half of the track. Some people were nervous but built up the courage to have a go. In the girls race Hollie came 1st , Annabelle came 2nd and Esme and Camille came joint 3rd. In the boys race Harry came 6th , Charlie came 4th ,pat came 7th and cian came 5th but how long it took you was what earned you the points.

After that we moved over to the throwing activity(throwing a torpedo as far as you could).First up was Annabelle,Camille,pat and Cian. Then Hollie,Esme,Harry and Charlie had a go.Everyone got really high scores from 30-50 meters in the team. 

Then we moved on to doing the sprint(70 meters) Esme came 2nd out of 5 competitors.Camille came 2nd.Hollie came 3rd and Annabelle came 1st. In the boys race Cian came 3rd  ,Pat came 4th, Charlie came 3rd and Harry came 1st but the time it takes you to do it in is what gets you points .

Overall the A team came second out of 16 schools. Hollie came 3rd out of all the girls that competed throughout all of the schools that took part.  

We would like to thank Mr Austin and Mrs Rendall for taking us and for Hunts School Sports Partnership for organising the event. Here is a short video of some of the photos we took.  Written by RH.
