Y4 Athletics at the EIS!

posted 17 Feb 2016, 01:31 by Unknown user

On Tuesday this week our Year 3 & 4 Sports Hall Athletics team went to the English Institute of Sport to compete in a tournament against 6 local schools.  It proved a great day and very successful. Everyone showed great passion and team work, as well as excellent skill and competitiveness.  The children took part in sprint relay activities and a variety of throwing (e.g. seated throw, chest push) or jumping activities (e.g., standing long jump, speed bounce). The results filled everyone with pride as we finished second.  Well done to everyone involved – an excellent result!

We also had a unique opportunity to see and have a photo taken with an original Olympic torch that has been used for the London games 2012. Well done to team Stocksbridge, we are all very proud of you and your efforts.
