Gymnastics Partnership Final
Beginners Gym Partnership Final
Venue: The Sands Centre, Carlisle
Date: Wednesday 14th March 2012
12 children from our school won their cluster gymnastics event to qualify for this, the second round of the gym competition. With nerves jangling, leotards on and glitter in their hair, apart from the boys of course, we set off to the competition.
They all had to complete a floor routine, from memory, and a vault. The Y3/4 team were first to go and after a nervy start with the vault they worked stylishly through their floor routines. The team was Giorgia Camele, Anna Beales, Anna Percival, Jamie Barnett, Ella Winthrop and Hannah C. McConville. They were awarded 3rd place in a very close competition. Well done all of you.
Next up was the Y5/6 team; they performed their floor routines beautifully to music before doing their vaults. After frightening the judge with their speed and flight and almost taking out the press photographer they were triumphant and won their section of the competition. They will now go forward to the County Finals and represent Carlisle and North Cumbria on Thursday 29th March. The team is Yasmin Little, Louise Stockdale, Luke Mallinson, Harvey German, Abby Mitchelson and Eve Percival – Good luck to you all in the final.
I would also like to say thank you to Amy Miller and Esther Beales for supporting the teams and becoming our lucky mascots!
