Key Stage 1 Athletics Festival

On Monday 24th June 10 Year 1 children went to Hellesdon High School to represent the federation at an Athletics Festival. The children had a go at practising their running jumping and throwing skills as they took part in 7 different activities. Despite the heat all children gave 100% effort and listened very carefully to the High School Sports Leaders who gave the instructions. The children took part in a 40 metre sprint, a 300 metre run and practised their throwing using special shot balls designed for use in Key Stage 1. They also learnt how to throw a discus by practising with hoops and then moving on to rubber discs before trying the long jump and learning the basics of high jump.
