World 5000m Relay Challenge 2015.
This year, for the first time, Year 4, 5 and 6 took part in this world wide event.
Teams from Year 5 took part on Tuesday 6th October. They competed against each other in their house teams, each running 200m before handing over the baton to the next member of their team. In the end it was the Unicorn team that won, with Griffins second and joint third Dragons and Phoenix.
Year 4 and Year 6 competed on Wednesday 7th (which was the official date of the challenge). Again they ran in their house teams. But this time all of year 4 and 6 took part (over the afternoon) and their times were added together for a total time for the whole team. Again each member of the team ran 200m before handing over the baton to the next member and then spent time recovering before they took their turn again.
In the end it was the Phoenix teams for both Year 4 and Year 6 that won! Unicorns were second, Dragons third and Griffins fourth for the Year 4s. While it was Unicorns, Dragons and Griffins for the Year 6s.
