- Last Updated: Friday, 02 February 2018 14:04
On Thursday 25th January we took 18 Year 5/6 boys and girls to take part in an athletics competition that was open to schools from all across Northamptonshire. 10 schools attended the competition and we came 4th! The children put their all into their events and we are very proud of their achievements.
Here's what our athletes have to say.....
I was nervous at first because I was the first person to compete. Once I had started the race it was fine and felt good, and we won which was fantastic. The whole experience was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am very happy I was a part of it.

I thought that the athletics tournament was good because I got to do lots of running and field events and it was fun. I did chest push, triple jump, obstacle relay and the 4x1 relay.

I think the tournaments are fun because we're all a bit competitive with the other schools. My sister comes to the events with some other Year 8s and they help everyone at the competition. They are really kind and supportive and they helped us when we were stuck.

When we arrived we started warming up and trying out the events that we were in. There were track events like relays and field events like jumping and throwing. The first race for the girls and boys was the obstacle relay and I took part. We won both the girls and boys relay. It was really fun!
