All children in years 5 and 6 travelled to the Old Cranleighan’s Club in Thames Ditton to compete in an Athletics fixture against Weston Green School. The events were the Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump, Javelin and Sprint Shuttles.
It was very close between the two schools. Westbury House performed well in all events and our top three went on to score for the school. Throwing a javelin was a new experience for our children and some of them took to it like a duck to water. It is a very tricky skill to master.
The afternoon ended with a big mixed relay run over 50 metre stretches. We had a fantastic start, taking the lead and increasing our distance. Unfortunately, a couple of handover errors set us back and we were pipped to the post by Weston Green.
It was a great afternoon and the children enjoyed the events very much.
