On Monday 4th July, five schools from across the Dawlish Learning Partnership gathered together at St Luke’s Science and Sports College in Exeter for the annual DLP Key Stage 1 Athletics Competition.
Each school sent along a team of two girls and two boys from reception, year 1 and 2 to take part in a variety of activities. After starting with a ‘Monsters Inc’ themed warm up, everyone was ready to compete in a number of events including a standing long jump, bean bag sprint, shot put & relay race. The morning finished with a fun 400m fun run around the track.
All the children cheered for their fellow team mates and showed some fantastic sports skills during all the events.
Each child who took part from Exminster, Kenn, Kenton and Westcliff and Cockwood Primary Schools received a certificate and medals were presented to the top performing boy and girl in each year group and bronze and silver medals were awarded to the second and third placed schools.
Team Exminster did fantastically well and were rewarded with the Bronze medals. A special mention must go to Kade Waldrom who achieved the 'Top Boy' award for his year group.
Many thanks to St Luke’s College staff and student leaders for hosting the day and to all the parents and carers who helped with transport and came along to support their children and school.
Well done to all the children who took part and represented their school!
