Year 6 enjoyed their different look Sports Day, they had an amazing time competing in their 4 different events comprising jumping, running, and throwing. The sun shone all morning and they have loved cheering on their peers.
The first events were a throw and a jump. This year we completed the standing triple jump and the discus. After a few practices they were ready to step up to the plate and complete their first and second attempts – aiming for the furthest distances they could achieve. The winners of the standing triple jump were Lucy and George. In the discus, the winning throwers with the furthest distances were Jaide and Lucy.
After a quick break for drinks, we set up ready for the running events: a 50m sprint and 600m long distance. The long distance came first, the pupils would be faced with three laps of the Broadclyst field before a sprint to the finish. The pupils split into half for this race to avoid crashes in the corner bends and the winners with the fastest times were Luca and Ellen.
Then we had our Sprint Heats – four for each gender with the top two from each heat going to the final. Our fastest runners would then meet in the top 8 clashes. The winners of the 50m Sprint were Josh and Lucy.
