RLT Athletics Festival
What a fantastic day KS2 had at Corby Athletics Stadium for the inaugural RLT Athletics Festival!
It was wonderful to be able to take the children to experience running and field events at a proper track, with proper stands. What an atmosphere there was!
We may be the smallest school to join the trust, but the children did us proud and were fantastic competitors, whether they came first, last or somewhere in-between. The sense of sportsmanship was amazing too, with children not only cheering on each other from Exton, but also friends and relatives from the other participating schools.
It was nerve-wracking for some to be out in front of so many children (around 500 attended!) and Mrs Davis was really proud of people who faced their fears and gave it a go. What resilience you showed!
We had children placed in 1st, 2nd or 3rd in some of their races and events, but were proud to have every child in KS2 take part in at least 2 events.
