Emmaville Primary School

Year 3/4 Quadkids Athletics

7th June 2023

Two teams of 10 children from years 3 and 4 went to Kingsmeadow School for the Quadkids Athletics event. All the children took part in 4 events: 50m sprint, Vortex howler throw, 400m run and standing long jump. The children showed impressive perseverance and determination, trying their best with each event all the way up to the finish line! They were all so supportive of each other, cheering each other on and congratulating each other; even congratulating children from other schools.  What fantastic sportsmanship!
At the end of the morning all the teams’ scores were added up: Emmaville Team B did incredibly well and scored 1,646 points, coming 6th out of 21 teams! Then it came to the top 3 to be announced. Everyone crossed their fingers and many of the children shut their eyes. They weren’t 3rd, they weren’t 2nd… then 1st place was announced… it was Emmaville Team A with a total of 1,906 points! 
Our event was for Gateshead West schools and on Thursday 8th June it will be Gateshead East’s event. The 2 highest scoring teams will qualify through to the County Finals! We are keeping everything crossed and waiting to find out whether we have made it through.
