I had the pleasure of taking a team of Year 6 children to the Pods today for the North Lincolnshire School Games Year 5/6 Badminton Competition. There were 22 schools there from North Lincolnshire, and we were split into 4 groups.
Each games last 10 minutes, each team member playing for 1min 45sec intervals, with the clock stopping to allow the change of players. The points accumulated and the score at the end of the 10 minutes was the final score for the game.
Thomas (1), Alex (2), Josh (3), Ellie (4) and Grace (5) represented our school. We were in Group 3 and our results were;
Crowle v Belton 23 / 11 - a win
Crowle v Bowmandale A 27 / 16 - a win
Crowle v Kirmington 20 / 22 - a close loss
Crowle v Wootton A 14 / 31 - a loss
Crowle v St. Augustine Webster B 27 / 10 - a win
We won 3 out of 5 matches and I was very proud of how well our children played. They practised a break times before the competition.
Overall we came 3rd. Well done to Wootton A who won all their matches and came first, and to Kirmington who won 4 of their matches, and came second. The winning team from each group will go through to the county finals.
Many thanks to Lynn who helped transport the children and cheered them on so well.
