Sports Go Virtual!
Last week everyone at Strand Juniors participated in the Virtual School Games Cross Country competition, where a massive total of 4186 children across the borough took part. Years 3 and 4 had the challenge of completing 1km in the fasted time possible and for Years 5 and 6 the distance was 1 mile. Once again the PE team were blown away by enthusiasm from all year groups. Some notable fastest times were Oliver H, Joshua L, Gabriel, Charlie H, Thomas and Susanna in Year 3, who all completed the 1km in under 6 minutes. In Year 4, shout-outs go to Ella, Aurelia, Alex and Daniel. In Year 5 and Year 6, the mile was completed in the quickest times by Elliot, Herbie, Zack, Achilles, Ilja, Sam and Lily F - who all finished the mile in less than 8 minutes!
This week, the children began competing and recording results for the Virtual School Games Pentathlon 2020! The events include a speed bounce, standing long jump, chest push, shuttle run, and a vertical jump.
