Quadkids Athletics Festival 2019
On Thursday 9th May, Year three took part in the QuadKids Athletics Festival at St Cuthbert Mayne. The class was divided in half. One group took part in an athletics competition while the other group took part in music, drama and dance activities.
The athletics group were divided into four groups and they competed in their teams against four other schools. The events included a standing long jump, 400m race, the vortex and a 50m sprint. The children displayed excellent sportsmanship skills, cheering and supporting their teammates. They all had a great time.
The rest of the class took part in a drama activity where they were faced with a crime scene. The children created still images and poses to represent what may have been happening at each part of the crime scene. In music, the children listened to three different James Bond songs by three different people. The children then had the opportunity to sing along to Skyfall. In dance the children became spies! They used dance and movement to pretend to sneak through lasers in attempt to steal the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. They then used movement to join in with a fight scene and learnt secret agent dance moves through street dance.
