Sportshall Athletics – Years 5/6

09 Dec Sportshall Athletics – Years 5/6

On Wednesday 27th November 2019, thirty five Havering schools competed in our School Games sportshall athletics competition for children in years 5 & 6.  Split across two sessions, morning and afternoon, the children competed as teams in track and field events.  Held at Hornchurch Sports Centre, the day was managed by Adam Burgess from Sportshall Associates, supported by young leaders from Coopers, Frances Bardsley and Bower Park Academy.

Resounding cheers echoed around the hall as the children participated in track events including obstacle relays and field events of speed bounce, javelin, standing long jump, vertical jump, chest push and standing triple jump.

Winners of the morning session were Benhurst, with Ardleigh Green scoring highest in the afternoon.

As the day drew to a close and all the scores had been combined, Ardleigh Green Junior were announced as the  event winners and will go on to represent Havering in the School Games finals in March 2020.

Congratulations to Ardleigh Green and well done to everyone who participated in this fantastic event.
