Cambridge Primary gymnasts are top in county

A talented team of gymnasts from a Barrow school are top of the class after triumphing in a county-wide competition.

The six gymnasts from Cambridge Primary School won the Cumbria Key Steps One Gymnastics competition in Penrith this month.

The pupils, who are in Year 2, qualified to represent Furness in the youngest category after winning the regional final held at Dowdales School.

Headteacher Jenny Lavery said they performed three different techniques individually – floor, vault and body management routines.

“It was an amazing performance from our gymnasts who have been practising hard for the finals and all achieved way beyond expectations. They were very brave to perform in front of a crowd and showed real determination.

“We offer a free gymnastics club for our pupils with coach Brenda McMinn Baillie, which is really popular and teaches so many skills including listening, focus and communication as well as team work and exercise.”

“Our other teams in different age groups were also third and fifth in the regional schools finals and I’d like to congratulate them all on their success.”

The winning pupils Poppy, Zayn, Liberty, Addy, Njala and Amelia all received a gold medal and a certificate.

They also received stars based on the level of their performance with four achieving three stars and two securing two stars, demonstrating the high level of their success.
