UKS2 Sportshall Athletics

Written on: Monday 22 November 2021

On Friday 12th November, twenty one children from Year 5 & 6 went to a Sportshall athletics competition at Peter May Sports Centre.  The team were chosen according to their scores taking during intra school competitions, PE lessons and personal best (lunch time) challenges.

First up, the field events. The children quickly listened to instructions and were off.  They took part in different events including: chest push, standing long jump, triple jump, vertical jump, javelin and speed bounce.  Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get many pictures of our field events as everything went by so quickly. Time then came for our track events.  This involved an obstacle relay, over/under relay, 1+1 lap, 2+2 lap, 6 lap and 4X1 lap relays.  Here are our results for our track events for which 5 schools took part:

Looking at the scores, I’m sure you’ll agree that we did extremely well.  

Overall we had fantastic day at Peter May sports centre.  Our Year 5 team mates are looking forward to the possibility of representing the school again next year

As sporthall is one of the biggest sporting events for School Games competitions, there are four different sessions being held.  We therefore have to wait for our results.  Fingers crossed!
