District Sports Dazzlers

Well done to everybody in what was a fantastic team effort.

Chaucer continued its recent run of good results in sports at an exciting District Sports competition (Erewash North Schools) today on the track at Rutland Sports Park.

Competing against Cotmanhay, Scargill, Mapperley, Kensington, Ladywood and Stanley Common, 25 children from Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 raced in a series of traditional Sports Day type events, including sprints, obstacle courses, skipping, beanbag pick-up, egg & spoon and relays.

Consistency was key. In fact, every single Chaucer representative made it through the qualification rounds to earn a place in their respective finals! In those finals, the vast majority resulted in top-3 finishes!

The regular high-placings meant that Chaucer Juniors were victorious on this occasion! Well done to everybody in what was a fantastic team effort.

Special mentions must go to Robson Hazard, who battled on through a leg injury, finishing 2nd in his sprint before collapsing over the line, and Evie Bloor for her "Random Act of Kindness". Despite winning the Y5 Sprint try-outs, Evie believed that to be a fluke result and claimed that Emily Pickering is actually running faster than her at the moment. Consequently, Evie volunteered to sit out the 70m sprint to let Emily run instead to give the team a better chance of success! Evie's decision proved to be a wise one as Emily went on to win the event in style!

Thanks also to all the parents that came to cheer the team on to victory.
