KS2 Track Events results
There was a great team spirit and a wonderful array of sporting talent in the junior races. The individual events concluded with a very entertaining circus race planned and performed by Year 6. The junior baton relay and the whole house hoop relay provided a gripping climax to the afternoon. It was clear that the final scores were going to be very close. Earth House achieved one of their best ever results, but it was the yellow team who celebrated as the shield was presented to Max and Keira from Air House.
