On Thursday the 30th January 2020, the Year 5 and 6 Sporthall Athletics team took part in a competition against other Wantage partnership schools at King Alfred’s West Site.
The team was made of 9 girls and 9 boys all taking part in relay races and field events including: obstacle race, over under relay, 6 lap parluuf, 4x1 lap relay, 2x2 lap relay, 2x1 lap relay, speed bounce, chest push, standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump and soft javelin throw.
The team had a tricky start with both the boys and girls’ team getting time penalties in their first races however they had such a big lead it did not affect the final position!
On the track Wantage had lots of wins against the other teams. In the field we had some super performance especially in the speed bounce and triple jump.
The final positions were announced and the team finished in 1st place overall.
Well done to everyone who took part.
