Children in Dolphin Class took part in the local schools' heat of this
year's national Sportshall Athletics competition, held at Thurston Community
College this morning. The boys' and girls' teams competed in a range of
running, throwing and jumping events and their combined efforts were
rewarded with a third place finish out of nine competing schools. Our
sprinting, jumping and speed bounce was particularly strong.
The children described the event as: 'Nerve-wracking; exhilarating and
intense competition; excellent and supportive team work; enjoyable yet
challenging field events; deafening support from a lively crowd;
We are hopeful that our team will be invited to take part in the area stage
of this competition, to be held at Stowmarket in a few weeks' time. In the
meantime, we have some more skills and stamina training to do!
