Last Friday our indoor athletics teams competed in the North Northumberland Championships at Lindisfarne Sports Centre.
Both boys and girls teams took part in a variety of running, jumping and throwing events including triple, long and vertical jumps, shot putt, chest push and soft javelin throws and running over a variety of distances both individually and as part of a relay team.
Our pupils got off to a great start on the track, winning both the boys and girls obstacle relays in all age groups, putting their skills on the high-stepper and speed bounce to very good effect and demonstrating clearly how to use the turning boards accurately.
Competing against St. Marys, Duke’s, St. Pauls and Lindisfarne Middle schools the year 5 and 6 teams won the competition by a staggering 40 points, whilst the year 8 boys and girls teams won their event for the second year running.
The teams will now go on to represent North Northumberland at the County Championships.
