Y3 & Y4
Mixed Indoor Athletics
Another fun sporting event attended by KS2 children.
Year 3 and 4 girls and boys had to do a mixture of activities using skills in both track and field events. These included:
Standing long jump
5 steps (5 giant leaps)
Chest press (chest throw)
Skipper (speed skipping with a hula hoop for 20 secs)
Speed bounce (20secs of side to side jumps)
Relay races of various lengths ( running up a block on the wall to turn and run back)
Tiggy Y3 said,"Some of the events were tricky because I'd never done them before."
Amelie Y3 agreed saying, "It was great fun because I loved the racing. It was my favourite."
Joseph Y4 said,"Even if we didn't come first, I enjoyed it. I think I did really well and didn't give up."
"I really liked the running because we got to run up the wall," commented Alfie & Seb Y3.
Tommy Y4 said, "It was great!"
Leila and Amelie Y4 laughed, "Leila was extraordinarily fast at skipping with a hoop. We loved the speed bounce because it was fun to jump."
Mrs Young had a great afternoon as well. It is always lovely to see ex-Dovery pupil being excellent Young Leaders at their Middle and Upper schools.
Thank you to all parents for picking up children and transporting them. We very much appreciate your support and help with these activities.
