Sportshall Athletics @ Featherstone High School
Friday 13 December 2019
It all started with a long, exhausting walk to Featherstone High School. When we finally got there, I dropped my things onto the floor and the next thing I knew my event was up (obstacle relay). We did well in all of the events but the best ones were over and under, 2+2 race and javelin. We all had a growth mindset as everyone tried very hard and even though we came 13th (out of 15 teams) we didn’t give up and we really enjoyed playing different games and events. In addition, that was the best part about the tournament: having fun. Our team had amazing sportsmanship and so did all of the other schools.
On Friday 1st December, at first we were very anxious and worried about what other people will think of us. During the matches the competitors began cheering and showing encouragement for their team and so did our team (team 3 gold). We did events such as speed bounce, standing long jump, turbo javelin, obstacle race and triple jump. In the athletics club we had to train hard to make sure that we did the best we could in the tournament at Featherstone High School. Only 3 boys and 6 girls went and in the end it wasn’t just about winning, it was about playing in the game or competing against others and having fun. Which is what we did.

Sports Hall Athletics – Tuesday 11th December 2018
On Tuesday, 11th December we went to an amazing athletics tournament at Featherstone High school. On the journey there, I was excited but I was also a little nervous. When we reached our destination, the hall was filled with lots of children from other schools that we were going to be against. We all had a positive feeling that we were going to do well and we did. We won many games such as: the running relay, standing long jump, triple jump and even more. Overall, we had a lot of fun and we would be thrilled to go back.
