On Monday 4th December, 18 children from year 5 and 6 visited the UEA to compete against other schools in the area at a range of athletic events. Each member of the team completed two track (running) and two field (throwing or jumping) events. The track events included long and short distance races and two obstacle races with hurdles to go over and under.
The field events which the children took part in included: standing long jump and triple jump, vertical jump, chest push, speed bounce and javelin. By competing in each of their events each competitor won points for the school.
All of our children tried extremely hard during the day, several of our children scored maximum points after gaining the highest scores against the other children in their group. The whole team were proud of their efforts.
