They played an extremely close game in their semi final, narrowly winning and qualifying for the final itself. After another very close match, they just lost out to an independent school. Despite being disappointed not to win the final, the team soon recognised what a great achievement being the second best school in the County was, and celebrated as if they had won the competition themselves.

Children from Year 3 and 4 at Heathlands had a great time at the Olympic and Paralympic festival. They got to take part in tennis, archery, boccia and goalball.

The children were great and represented the school well.

They won the competition having won every game and now look forward to taking part in a County event.

In the last match, it all came together and they managed to get the win their play had deserved. Well done!

Before the competition we had a chance to practice at school. Two of us even managed to score a bullseye! We all did our best and learnt more about how to shoot an arrow, we wanted to improve our aiming though!


At the competition we were split into two teams. It started well but we were keen to do better. The other schools we played did really well. At the end we found out the results.

The morning was really fun and we would all like to go again!
