On Your Marks, Get Set, Go!

This week, Year 3 took part in the Essex Virtual Athletics Competition.

After a practise session, each child participated in five events: a vertical jump, a speed bounce, a chest push, a standing long jump and a shuttle run.

The results for each activity were either timed, counted or measured in metres and centimetres. These were then placed on a score sheet which will be sent off to the competition.

The children were very resilient and kept going despite having tired and aching bodies!
