This afternoon an elite team of Year 5 and 6 children went to Thornton Heath Sports Centre for the Sportshall Athletics.
It was an absolutely fantastic event, with loads of different track and field events. Ranging from “speed bounce”, where competitors see how many times they can jump, two-footed over a hurdle in 20 seconds, long and triple-jumps and different throws to various kinds of relay race.
Our team did fantastically well, competing with some really great teams from other schools, and finished fifth overall. Well done team!
My personal highlight was the boys 6×1 relay, where the Selsdon boys finished neck and neck with Heavers Farm in a very tense race! Well done to our Selsdon boys, who managed to clinch the win in that race!
