8 pupils from years 1 & 2 were lucky enough to get the chance to take part in the Sportshall Athletics Festival held at Rushcliffe School in February.

Our team worked their way around a circuit of activities, which helped them to hone their throwing, jumping and running skills. All the teams were then pitted against each other in obstacle-style races.

3 girls and 5 boys enjoyed an afternoon of fun and competition, led by a team of teachers and older pupils from Rushcliffe School. Our own teachers, Miss Smith and Mrs Marshall, were also on hand to help and cheer on the pupils!

The girls’ team did brilliantly, throwing themselves gamely through hoops and tunnels! The boys’ team performed impressively too and managed to win 2 of their relays!

Each pupil received an official certificate, which was awarded in assembly the next day.

Miss Smith said, “It’s great that so many of our pupils are able to take part in these regional competitions. Their enthusiasm and have-a-go attitude is fantastic and we’re really proud of how they all performed.”
