These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a team based competition consisting of four athletics events where individual performances are scored using a points table and the winners are the team with the highest cumulative score. It is aimed at children in year 5/6 to give them an experience of Athletics competition.
The intended outcome of this competition is to provide children in year 5/6 the experience of competition within the sport of Athletics. Although they will perform individually the scoring system of this event encourages teamwork and social development.
- Social Development – Sports competitions can provide a sense of belonging, enabling young people to develop their teamwork, communication, empathy and respect for others.
All children in the team will perform a 75m sprint, 600m run, standing long jump and a vortex howler throw.
Teams consist of 8-10 children (4 or 5 Boys and 4 or 5 Girls). The scores of the top 4 boys and top 4 girls over the four events are added together to give the team score. We recommend that you try to make teams of 10 in case any member of the team is unable to take part or unable to complete an event.
There will be a separate competition for small schools and big schools.
At present, we are unsure as to whether this will be a pathway event. Once School Games has made their decision, we will inform schools.
This event is part of the School Games offer and so open to all schools and FREE to enter.
Bookings are closed for this event.
