Year 5/6 Athletics Competition - June 2016

Year 5/6 Athletics Tournament


On Thursday 16th June, a group of 10 children from Year 5/6 headed off to Priory School to compete in the Sainsbury's School Games, North Somerset Athletics Tournament. This consisted of a 75m sprint, a 600m run, the long jump and the vortex howler throw. 


The event was brilliantly organised, consisting of 8 teams from 7 schools and the children loved every moment of the event. Sports leaders from Priory School assisted throughout the day and were fantastic throughout, giving positive encouragement and helping with the organisation. There was even time for a fun 4 x 50m relay at the end, with the Uphill Girls team coming 4th out of 16! They had a try at lots of new athletic activities and competed really well.


Well done to Dew Birch, Jack Weaden, Aiden Turner Hogan, Daniella Barrett, Eliza Birtwistle, Mpho Makeotlane, Abigail Briffitt, Oliver Tester, Alvin James and Louis Singfield. Thank you to Mrs Barrow and Mrs Saunders for accompanying the children.
