On Thursday 26th January, 8 children from Year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to attend the West Norwich and Dereham School Sports Partnership (WNDSSP) Swimming Gala held at UEA Sportspark. The children took part in a variety of different races including breaststroke, freestyle and backstroke. All of the children were incredibly supportive of each other and were enthusiastically cheering each other on from the side-lines!
The last races were relay races and the children were able to demonstrate their excellent team work skills in all three of our relays and even came second in one of them! Miss Jacobs and Miss Taylor were incredibly proud of all of the children as they were understandably a bit nervous to start with but they soon relaxed and had a fantastic time.
At the end of the gala, there was a short presentation of certificates (in which we got a few)! The ‘determination’ sticker was also given to one of the Year 6 boys for being determined to do his best and also support his peers to be the best that they could be.
