Year 5 & 6 Indoor Athletics

Tuesday 31st January
 
Year 5 and 6 have competed in an indoor athletics event, here at Allendale, against local middle schools.
The Sportshall Primary event sees a girls team and a boys team working hard to gain a combined score in events such as standing triple jump, obstacle courses, relays, chest push speed bounce and standing long jump. Unfortunately the soft javelin event had to be pulled since some boys were able to throw it the whole length of the hall!
 
The Allendale team put up a good fight, coming first in the boys obstacle relay and 2nd in the 2 + 2 lap relay and the 6 lap paarlauf. Ovingham Middle were the overall winners and will go through to a Northumberland final in March.
 
Well done to everyone who took part for competing with great sportsmanship.
