Sports hall achievement at Lynnsport



Sportshall Athletics is run similar to the Decathlon in that every second/centimetre from each activity, represent a number of points which are then added together to create a final score. Events include: speed bounce, vertical jump, long jump, five strides, javelin, chest throw, 1/1 lap, 2/2 lap, 4/1 lap and 4/1 obstacle relays. During the whole day 20 small and large primary schools took part, with only one boys and girls team qualifying for the Winter Games in Norwich, as it happens it was North Wootton Boys and Holly Meadows girls that won with the most points from the two sessions.

Eighteen of our girls and boys took part participating in up to 4 events each, 2 track and 2 field. As a small school many of our year 3 were included which was a little daunting but everyone tried their best, listening to instructions and supporting each other. They performed brilliantly and never gave up and were rewarded with a creditable 5th {girls} and 7th {boys} for the morning session. Following the afternoon session, the final placings were 11th place for the girls and 15th for the boys. To put these placings in perspective both our teams were in the top 3 had it of been a small schools event which is a magnificent performance. They all said they had enjoyed themselves and competing. Thank you to Mrs Massen and Mrs Day for supervising the field events.
