Y3/4 Pupils have a go at Sports Hall Athletics!
Recently a Sports Hall Athetics event was put on for the current Y3/4 pupils in school to get them excited for the Sports Hall Athletics competition for when they move into Y5 . The children got to learn about all the different events and have a go at them all to find their favourite for when they enter. It was a great day out for all the children and had some incredibly positive feedback!
Here is a great quote from Jo Searle, Phillimore School:
Just wanted to say that I thought the session at the EIS on the 29th Jan was amazing, possibly one of the best days I’ve taken kids to and definitely worth giving up a day off for. The organisation was superb, the idea of coaching the children in the morning in all events, giving school staff the results to enable them to pull a team together and then giving everyone the experience of a full sportshall competition was ingenious. It gave the Y4s who have not been involved before a taste of what is to come in Y5 and for those who have never ‘qualified’ for the team a real sense of achievement and allowed them to do what they’ve wanted to do ie represent the school. There was an amazing buzz as we walked back to school.
