Last week, some Year 5 and 6 children went to Abbeyfield school for an athletics competition. This helped the children develop their team work skills as they cheered each other on. All of the children were separated into groups of boys and girls. The boys did the track events while the girls did the field events. The field events were: vertical jump, triple jump and standing long jump. They also had 3 track events which were; 1+1 lap relay, 2+2 lap relay and the 6 lap relay. Other events included were: javelin, speed bounce and chest push. It ended with an obstacle course and everyone enjoyed the experience of trying something new. We are are all looking forward to the next competition.
Sky (year 5) said, “I really enjoyed the speed bounce, it was challenging but fun!”
