DLP KS2 Athletics Competition 2016

On Tuesday 5th July,  six 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 2 Athletics tournament.

Each school sent along a team of two girls and two boys from each year group in years 3,4 & 5 to take part.

The children competed in a number of activities including sprinting, long jump, speed bounce, skipping, vortex howler and target practice and a relay race, with all the children showing some fantastic skills as well as good sportsmanship.

Well done to all the Exminster children who took part. A special mention must go to the four year 4 children who opted for the challenge of competing in the year 5 age group. They showed great motivation and resilience throughout their events. A huge congratulations to Scarlett-Mae Stacey, who despite being a year 4, won the best girl in the year 5 age group!

Many thanks to St Luke’s College staff and student leaders for hosting the day and for coming in on their day off, due to a teachers strike, to ensure this event still went ahead. Thanks also to all the parents and carers who helped with transport and came along to support their children.
