Bellboating Regatta 2017
On Friday, some of our Year 5 & 6 children took part in the annual Bellboating regatta on Friday 19th May 2017 at the Plymouth Amateur Rowing Club on The Embankment. Our school took 8 children from Year 5 and 8 children from Year 6 to the event.
The regatta consisted of both a main and plate competition with heats, semi-finals and finals which meant every team raced at least twice! Our Year 5 team came 4th in their semi-final race and our Year 6 team came 2nd in the final. Well done to both teams who showed amazing teamwork!
To add to the children’s experience the Amateur Rowing Club put on back ground activities for them to take part in during their down time. The activities they participated in was canoeing, kayaking, ergo rowing, ergo kayaking and yoga. They all had a great time and then enjoyed a picnic on Blagdon’s Meadow.
