On Sunday 28th February, 12 excited gymnasts and 2 very blurry eyed members of staff, set off to Hull at the crack of dawn! They were competing in the Yorkshire Schools Under 11 Floor and Vault Gymnastics Championships and were up against many seasoned competitors.
The mixed team of Sam, Evie (Y4), Erin, Sophie, Evie B (Y5) and Archie (Y3) started the competition off for us on vault! After a few jitters and some dodgy landings we managed to come away relatively unscathed!
It was onto the floor next where this team performed beautifully and showed the judges just what they were made of.
It was now over to the girls team of Emily F, Millie, Zoe (Y4), Izzy (Y5), Hannah (Y6) and Hattie (Y3). They performed brilliantly on both pieces and wowed the judges with their skills and smiles.
Finally we had to wait for the results to be read out…
The girls team came a brilliant 5th place out of 9 and were the 3rd best school from Sheffield.
The mixed team waited….
We were delighted to hear we had won the silver medal! Just missing out on national finals, in only or first time competing at this big competition!
A massive well done to all the Gymnasts from Mrs Booth and Miss Green, you were brilliant and we couldn’t be more proud of you!
