YEAR 5 and 6 children from Shrewton Primary School thrived at an athletics competition in Durrington.

Budding track and field stars competed in Quad Kids at Avon Valley College. Their efforts in vortex throwing, long jump, short distance running and 800m resulted in silver and a place in the finals next month.

Sports leader Naomi Deegan said: “Overall we had a great time and hope to take part in more competitions.”
