Gold Medals for our Sportshall Athletes
Congratulations to our eighteen Year 5 & 6 athletes who won GOLD at the recent Sportshall athletics event at Cheltenham College. We competed against three other Cheltenham Schools and came out victorious! The event involved all children taking part in two track and two field events each. The event is very much a TEAM event with all points counting towards an overall winner.
On the track, children took part in relay races involving running and, sometimes, running over and under obstacles. Each athlete had to use a Reversaboard correctly to turn at the walls and keep their speed when running back! Our teams were excellent, winning six of the twelve track events!
On the field events, the children used a number of athletic skills. There was standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump, chest push, javelin and speed bounces. All the team gave their absolute best.
Well done to the WHOLE team!
