Nine children from year four and five attended a panathlon competition at the UEA on 12th February. A panathlon is a competitive event with a range of inclusive sports and the children move in a carousel so they can complete every activity. The children try to score points for their team through a range of throwing and kicking activities. There was also a curling activity which they particularly enjoyed, even though in was on a hall floor rather that ice!
Our children showed fantastic self-belief and determination throughout the event. They also listened showing great respect to the other adults and the high school children who were leading the different activities.
The second team scored 49 points but we just beat them with 50 points to be the winning team! The children received a medal each as well as a trophy for the school and were very pleased with their achievements.
