Report written by Rhianna Gruit and Emily Carpenter
On the 9th November 2017, children from Oldway, Hayes, Sacred Heart, Preston, Roselands, Stoke Gabriel , Curledge Street and Collaton St Mary attended an Athletics Festival at PCSA for Years 1s and 2s.
When we entered the hub we heard the excited children eager to participate in all 9 activities and saw the enthusiastic smiles of the sports leaders ready to help the young children have a better experience and understanding of different events in athletics.
The children took part in many activities over the course of the afternoon including: high jump, dynamic balance, obstacle relay, standing long jump and many others.
Here are some quotes from staff members and children:
“It’s good, the sports leaders are nice and the activities are fun” – Grace, Year 1 from Collaton.
“I think the different sports are really good, I’m happy and enjoying it a lot”- Max, year 1 from Collaton.
“It’s good and I would do it again!”-Kayla, Year1 from Oldway.
“I find it a bit difficult but it’s really fun”- Logan, Year 2 from Hayes.
“Very good, well run and good variety of activities for the children!” – Mrs Goble, Collaton.
“ The activities are excellent and are challenging for the children, it’s well organised and uses very good equipment, all the leaders are very positive”- Mrs Good, Roselands.
Thank you for all coming and thanks to all sports leaders who helped out!
