On Thursday 2nd February, 18 boys and girls from Year 6 attended an indoor athletics competition at the UEA.
When we arrived at the UEA we had to take our places behind our school’s sign and wait for instructions. There were other schools competing against us but this made us even more determined!
We then lined up for our events. The boys were called over for their track and field events whilst the girls competed in their events. Each child took part in two track and one field event. These included: 1+1+1 lap relay, 2+2 lap relay, 6 lap relay, chest push, standing long jump, triple jump, soft javelin and speed bounce. Each child showed great determination and sportsmanship. It was great to see the support and encouragement they were giving each other. Once the events were over, it was time for the results. We were elated to hear that we had come 1st! We were all so excited and pleased with how hard we had tried and how well we had worked as a team. During the award ceremony there was a certificate to be won for ‘teamwork’. This certificate was awarded to someone who showed great teamwork skills during their events. Miss Gilfillan was very proud of the children, they set a great example to all of the other schools. Well done Toftwood Junior School!
