08.05.2018 - Quad Kids

This morning 30 of our Year 4 pupils went to the Eastbourne Sports Complex to take part in the Quad Kids games. There were four different events to take part in throughout the morning. We started with a standing jump, all the children jumped twice and their longest jump was recorded. Then we moved onto a 400m run around the track, it was rather hot but despite the heat everyone did brilliantly. The throwing event came next with three throws of the howler and some amazing distances were thrown. Finally, we finished on a 50m sprint. All of the children performed brilliantly and displayed fantastic sportsmanship throughout the morning. Great work everyone!
