Y5/6 Indoor Athletics January 2019
Eighteen children were invited to represent Walliscote at a Year 5 Indoor Athletics Tournament at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. The 9 boys and 9 girls who participated worked tirelessly, learning new skills and observing how each event worked.
Each child had the chance to compete in 4 activities, two track and two field events. The events included Relay races, obstacle races, long distance and a mini hurdles event all of which were positioned along the length of the sports hall. The field events were; javelin, chest throw, standing long jump, vertical jump, standing triple jump and speed bouncing. All of the children tried so hard and were noted by the judges for their effort, praise and support for one another, no matter if we were first or last.
As the supporting adults, Mrs Chamberlain and I were so proud of how they conducted themselves and look forward to taking them to future events.
