Federation Sports Day

Earlier this week, Team Oakwood competed in the annual Redbridge and Lordshill Federation Sports Day held at Fairisle Junior School.

Oakwood took 18 children from across the school which were split into three teams, Y2, Y4, Y6. Each team then competed against 3/4 other schools at a range of events (very similar to our own School Sports Day) with teams earning points at each station for and overall Team Oakwood.

Oakwood did very well, picking up plenty of wins on the way round the stations and were 'trading blows' with both Newlands (last years winners) and Fairisle in the battle for 1st. When all the events were complete and the points counted it was a Newlands, Oakwood, Fairisle - 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

In addition to the 'multi-skilled' events there were 6 sprint races - Girls and Boys, Y2, Y4 and Y6. This is where Team Oakwood showed their talent winning 5 out of the 6 races and coming 2nd in the 6th! A fantastic achievement.

Well done to everyone who represented the school so well and did Oakwood proud.
