Thursday 21st June 2012 – District Sports Field Events

Filed under: PE,Year 5,Year 6 @ 12:00 pm

Selected Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in the annual Swanmore and District Field Events this morning which was held at St. John’s Primary school – luckily the weather held out long enough for it to take palce!

There were 4 events which the children were selected for – the first event was the Rounders Ball throw, the second event was the Vortex throw (a vortex is like a mini javelin but slightly heavier), then there was the Standing Long Jump and finally the Speed Bounce. Each child got 3 attempts at each event and their highest score or furthest distance was recorded and put forward to the score table.

Everybody did brilliantly and they all tried their best, supporting each other at all times. The individual results are as follows:

Year 5 Events:
Zac – 1st place for Rounders Ball throw, 2nd place for Vortex throw, 2nd place for Standing Long Jump
Morgan – 1st place for Rounders Ball throw, 2nd place for Vortex throw
Lydia – 3rd place for Speed Bounce
Bea – 3rd place for Standing Long Jump

Year 6 Events:
Jamie – 1st place for Speed Bounce
Abby – 2nd place for Standing Long Jump, 2nd place for Vortex throw
Aimee – 2nd place for Speed Bounce

Overall, BWJS came 2nd place with 23 points – a fantastic achievement!

Well done to all of the competitors – Zac, Zak, Bea, Lydia, Morgan (Year 5) and Jamie, Jamie, Jake, Luke Natasha, Abby, Aimee (Year 6). Thank you to the parents who came along to support as well.

    As for everyone else that went to compete congratulations to all!

    We do the same kind of things here in Australia. If you make it you go to the Zone events.

  2. Lucky the weather didn’t come that early.
    Our school doesn’t have district for vortex throw so lucky you again.

  3. Hi Bishop’s Waltham Junior School. My name is Lizzie and I am from St.Monica’s Australia. I like the sound of the sports event that you had. We do something like that here called the Athletics Carnival where we do sports like sprints, vortex throwing, hurdles, shot-put, long jump and triple jump. We do this in summer around February. It goes for half a day for prep 1/2’s and a whole day for 3/4 and 5/6’s.

    Keep going with the great work.

    From Lizzie
