L3 County Finals
We had 1 runner from Cockshutt who represented our North Shropshire District in the County Finals at Shrewsbury Sports Village. Unfortunately, due to the bad weather and the waterlogged Cross Country course this part of the competition had had to be postponed once and on the rearranged date the runners had to compete on the cycle track as the weather was still poor. He finished in 12th place (out of the whole of North Shropshire) which was an amazing result!
Year 3 and 4 Dodgeball
This is a wonderful sport that every child loves and the Y3 and 4 children had a great time training for it! The team consisted of 8 children with 3 girls and 3 boys playing at all times with 2 substitutes, the games are fast and furious with lots of dodging and throwing. The team displayed great sportsmanship qualities: as soon as they knew they had been hit they straight away left the court and sat down. They finished in an amazing 1st place and as this is a new competition for our Sports Cluster ‘Cockshutt’ will be the first team to be engraved on the trophy! Well done everybody!
This is a wonderful competition for the younger children to be able to compete in – there are not very many that we can go to so we like to get the KS1 children to as many as possible. The team of 4 children trained incredibly hard – they have to remember a floor and a bench routine and perform in front of judges and other competitors which is a huge feat when you are only 5 and 6 years old!
