U9 Quad Kids - 30.06.17

It was the turn of Year 3 & 4 to attend the first ever U9  Quad Kids event at Inspire Suffolk on Friday 30th June with 31 schools attending. Our mixed squad of 5 boys and 5 girls all took part in a 400m run, standing long jump, 60m sprint and vortex throw. The opening ceremony was just like the olympics as all the  schools paraded around the track with their team flags making the children very excited to be part of this exciting athletics event.

Our 400m run showed our resilience with our squad performing well with some top finishing places. The children leapt high and far in the standing long jump with encouragement from one another. The 60m was competitive and our squad excelled in their races. The vortex throw was exciting with some good throws and a top throw of 28m sent our squad and parents cheering!

The children thoroughly enjoyed this well organised event and our overall position was 7th out of 31 schools that attended. Congratulations to you all, we are very proud of you.

Many thanks for the parents and grandparents for transporting the children to the venue and for your continuous support.
