Five New PB’s (Personal Bests) at Kettering Open Meeting

Yesterday we competed at the Kettering Open Meeting for the first time and thankfully, this time round the weather was brighter and the wind was kinder than last week at the Rugby Spring Medal. It turned out to be an awesome day as we came away with five PB’s. Kae got a new personal best in 75m and 150m, and wasn’t far away from a PB in Long Jump. Kaiyuki got personal bests in 75m, 150m, and Long Jump (with a fantastic 4.15 metre jump).

It was lovely to see all the different elements of training come together and work on the day. There is always room for improvement, especially in our technique, but for now we’re just over the moon and relaxing. Not only was it a great day for us, but also for our team mates who put in great performances – with many of them getting PB’s also.

Silver Medal at Rugby Spring Medal Open

rugby-spring-open

It was a fantastic turn out for the Rugby Spring Medal Open today from the U11’s right through to senior athletes. The weather was changeable and quite windy at times, but that just added to the day’s drama, as there were plenty of great track and field events to watch and be inspired by.

Kae came 4th in 75m heat, 3rd in 150m heat and still awaiting confirmation of Long Jump. She got a new Personal Best (PB) in 150m also. Great day for her!

Kaiyuki came 1st in 75m heat, 2nd in Long Jump and 2nd in 150m heat. With a new PB in Long Jump. Kaiyuki also got a silver medal for coming 2nd overall in Long Jump. Awesome day for him too!

Races weren’t set to PB grades, so you can only race against whoever you’re put with on any given event. On that it was another great performance from Team Crisp. Onwards and upwards! We head to the Kettering Open next week Saturday!

The Gadget Show Live 2015

We were back at the NEC Birmingham on Wednesday to visit The Gadget Show Live 2015. Everything from the latest products to hit the high street to the best of British innovation and technology of the future was available for us to get our hands on.

We had a lot of fun going through the different zones and especially enjoyed the Kids Tech Toy Trail and Build Your Own Gadgets Workshops, which featured a cool new 3D Printer. There was so much to see, do and be inspired by, so it was definitely worth visiting! This trip completed our recent exploration of science and engineering.

Science Experiments

We do a lot of self-led projects at home, which means we decide what we want to do under any particular topic/subject. Our mum and dad give us a helping hand whenever we need it. Recently, we did science for a couple of weeks. This involved us researching into a series of different science experiments across different subject areas, from gravity to forces, chemistry, etc. We picked around 15 or so experiments in total, tested them out and understand what was happening and why. Once we were confident about our experiments we then demonstrated them to our parents. It was so much fun!

History Lesson at Wellingborough Museum

The Wellingborough Museum in Northamptonshire is a small museum with very lovely and friendly staff. As part of a history workshop we learned about the Wellingborough’s history right from the ice-age, to the Romans, the World War’s and beyond. It was a great day out and we will most definitely visit again someday!
