Halifax Primary kids are good sports
Youngsters from Halifax Primary School in Ipswich enjoyed a day of sportshall athletics on Tuesday.
The Sportshall Awards scheme is designed to provide a fun framework for curriculum-time delivery of Sportshall Athletics.
The sessions prepare the children for the competition pathway as well as rewarding their individual performance and improvement in the form of badges and certificates.
The programme also helps to identify gifted and talented children, enables schools to compete virtually against other schools all over the UK and can support fitness monitoring within the school and in a broader context.
The 30 pupils who scored the most combined points in balance step, long jump, high-stepper, chest push and speed bounce were due to represent their school in a level 2 competition, against other schools from Ipswich and South Suffolk, at Westbourne Community College, today.
