Year 5 & Year 6 Swimming Gala

Posted: 14 October 2016

8 teams from Years 4, 5 and 6 represented schools in the Axe Valley Cluster Swimming Gala.

The races included front crawl, backstroke, breast stroke  All races were 25m. We also had time to complete the 50m open race which was exciting to watch.  Some children were also able to participate in the FUN relays. These included woggles and an on the water assault course which included some team work skills.

The children all put in a fantastic effort in their races. They also demonstrated good sportsmanship, cheering on others and supporting their team members.

Kilmington – Alara did particularly well and won 2 of her races.  Jemimah, William, Noah and Nieeve also won their races. The boys relay did well with a time of 1.48.46sec and Noah did particularly well in the 50m winning his race with a time of 42.41s which was 6 seconds faster than second place from All Saints.

A total of 8 teams entered and Kilmington was announced the winning team for the third year running a fantastic achievement!

Well done to all who took part.
