School Games Update

Sportshall Athletics 5.12.17


On Tuesday 5th December 2017, 20 pupils from Years 5 and 6 attended an Indoor Athletics competition at Westbourne Academy. This is a fast paced, action packed and very loud afternoon of activities! The children have to compete in up to two running events which could include an obstacle course and a 6 lap parlauf race. They also compete in two field events ranging from chest push to triple jump.


The children have been practising each week in Athletics Club and have worked hard to learn all the disciplines. This really paid off at the event where they competed strongly winning many of their running heats. When all the scores were collected and the results were announced we were pleased to have come a very credible third place overall!


A brilliant effort from an enthusiastic and highly skilled team. Well done!
