On Friday 26th January, 12 children from year 1 and year 2 at Toftwood Infant School took part in the West Norwich & Dereham Key Stage 1 Sports Hall athletics competition at Taverham High School. This is part of the school’s commitment to offer a range of sporting activities, encouraging active participation and encouraging children to try new sports that they may wish to purse in the future.
The festival had 7 different athletics based activities for the children to try, where they practised skills of throwing, catching, running and jumping. Each school was partnered with another school so the children could make new friends and work together as a team with different children.
The children had a great afternoon trying the athletics activities some which they had had a go at before and some which were completely new. They all tried their very best and were great ambassadors for the school.
