"The quality of teaching and learning in physical education is good. Pupils enjoy participating in sport very much."
Year 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed practicing for this year’s Stevenage Indoor Athletics Festival, working hard to improve our throwing, jumping, running and bouncing. With everyone joining in, it was great to discover some of our hidden talents (some of us are a lot bouncier than we might look) and we’ve also been able to track our improvements from week to week, again giving some of the slightly less sporty members of class a chance to shine.
All this training paid off in style when we finally reached the Festival itself, held at Barnwell School. With 15 schools (and almost 300 children) from across town taking part, the competition was fierce - but our lightning baton changes, fast turns and utter determination gave us a real edge in many of our races. With points awarded in every event, none of us had any idea where we had finished until the final scores were read out - so we were delighted to discover that we had secured third place in both the Boys and Girls competitions, and excitedly collected our medals.
