On Wednesday 17th October, 14 children from years 5 & 6 were invited to Kettlethorpe High School to participate in an Indoor Athletics Festival against 5 other schools in our pyramid.
When the children arrived at the High School, they rules were explained and they were encouraged to enjoy their time together above all else. The children were very excited and eager to take part in both the fielding and running events. They were patient and very encouraging towards each other throughout the whole festival.
The children worked excellently as a team and the support they gave each other was fabulous. The field events were split into 5 individual events where 1 boy and 1 girl could take part in each field event. All children competed in the running events. At the end of the competition, the results were added together and St James finished 4th in the tournament. Everyone attending was very proud of how hard the children worked and how amazingly they supported each other.
The children enjoyed their afternoon and we would like to thank parents and supporters who helped transport the children to the event and stayed to cheer everyone on.
