It was a fantastic start for the year 5/6 pupils that went to represent the school on Tuesday 4th October, taking part against 6 other schools including; Snape Wood, Rise Park, Burford, Southglade, Westglade and Warren. There had already been lots of hard work and preparation for the team as they had two weeks of training to ensure the team would get through to the Semi Finals.
The training preparation had certainly helped the team as they dominated in the track and field events to win the heats outright with a 1st place finish cruising into the Semi Finals which will take place after half term. A fantastic result well done everybody involved.

Year 5/ Sports hall Athletics - Finals
The year 5/6 Athletics team continued in their quest of success, having already worked extremely hard to get to the city finals the girls and boys knew it was going to be a tough ask to achieve a medal place.
The team were well prepared and were ready for the challenge ahead, and after a slow start to the afternoon the team grew in confidence, and showed fantastic technique and ability in every activity they took part in. The afternoon was very competitive and lots of members of the public and organisers of the competition had stated how high the standards were this year.
As the afternoon came to an end nobody had any idea on who would be crowned city champions. Robin Hood had worked so hard to already get to the city finals, we eventually finished fourth in the city and was within touching distance of a bronze medal after missing out by only 8 points. It is a fantastic achievement from all the team members and we as a school are so very proud of each and every one of our athletes, a massive well done!
