Year 3 and 4 Indoor Athletics
We have been training for the indoor athletics competition on Thursdays after school and would have liked to have had more training sessions to give the children a better chance to succeed. However, on the night the children did the school proud; they ran, threw and jumped their socks off and managed to finish 4th out of 7 schools. The competition was held on the 1st February 2017 at St Bedes High School. They had a fantastic time and worked considerably hard as a team encouraging and supporting each other in each event. The team was put together with 9 boys and 9 girls competing in both track and field events. We have a talented bunch of children and we're really looking forward to next year when this competition comes around again.
Year 5 and 6 Indoor Athletics
On Thursday evenings we held indoor athletic trials for year 5 and 6. We had 10 boys and 10 girls. These trials were very successful and the children worked so hard. We took the same 20 children to Witton Park on . Wednesday 25th January 2017 for the competition. Children took part in 10 events throughout the night which included, running, jumping and throwing. It was a great success and the children gave it their all. They were pipped to first position and finished 2nd out of 5 schools. On another day we would have finished 1st. Maybe next year!!
