Year 6 Sportshall Athletics

The Year 6 Sportshall Athletics Team travelled to Stratton Upper School on Thursday 7th November,  to compete against Biggleswade Academy and Edward Peake in the East Bedfordshire Schools competition.

Athletes competed in both track and field events including:

  • individual races over 1, 2 and 6 laps
  • team track relays
  • standing long jump
  • speed bounce
  • javelin

Points were awarded to the athletes in each event, the number of points varied depending on where they finish. These points were then added together in each event to give each school a finishing total. Overall Potton had lots of 1st place finishes with some excellent sprinting on the track and superb throwing and jumping in the field from both the boys and girls.

Overall Potton accumulated 42 points and finished in 2nd place only 2 points behind the eventual winners Edward Peake.

A massive well done to the team who, for their first sportshall athletics competition did brilliantly and showed some excellent sportsmanship throughout the whole evening.

Also a massive thank you to Miss Carrington who attended the event with us and helped with organising the team.
