Various things happening at home have led to the Blog being left on one side for a while - however, here is an update:
The children have been doing really well.
Amelia became the South of England Long Jump Champion and Triple Jump Champion at Ashford in May, followed by the London Schools 100m Champion and Long Jump Champion on 9 June at Battersea. Unfortunately, the Welsh Championships were missed as her entry went astray in the post. However, on the same day (16 June) there was an open meeting at Herne Hill (Tooting Bec) and she came 1st in the 200m, 100m, Long Jump and 75m hurdles.
Her next meeting is this Sunday when she attends the South East Schools Pentathlon Championships representing London at Barnet Copthall, Hendon.
Tom claimed 3rd place and bronze medals in his 200m and Long Jump for Wandsworth Schools at Tooting Bec, just missing out on qualification for the London Schools Championships.
And Robert claimed 2 Golds (150m and 4 x 100m relay where he ran the first leg) and 1 Silver (Long Jump) in the Southfields Community College Local Primary Schools Championships at Wimbledon Park on 12 June. On the same day, he went on to play cricket for his schools, Sheringdale, in the local Putney Primary Schools Sports Association Cricket Championship. His team won the final with Robert's contribution being some good batting and fielding and a superb 'caught and bowled' for the school team.
Robert goes on to play in the Wandsworth Finals of the local London competition and, if they win that this week, they will play at the Oval!
