Last week, Year 5 and 6 pupils were visited by Zoe and Eddie from Specialising in Sport who delivered their annual Sportshall Athletics Roadshow, an event which acts as a prelude to the children's PE lessons this half term as well as the School Games Sportshall Athletics competition, in which Greswold are current Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire County Champions.
Each class were introduced to the 6 field events, with their performance being recorded as a way of complementing the PE Curriculum's Personal Best programme. Children will then retest themselves later on in the term to see if they've improved on their scores in Chest Push, Soft Javelin, Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump, Vertical Jump and Speed Bounce.
It was also a chance for Mr Hornsey to start choosing children to represent the school at the upcoming Sportshall Athletics qualifying event at Tudor Grange Tennis Centre on Tuesday 23rd January.
Up to 30 pupils will be chosen altogether with competitors being allowed to take part in up to four events in total (2 track and 2 field events).
Fortunately, this year's event coincides nicely with the PTA's very generous contribution of funding a brand new Craft athletics kit which the children will wear for the first time on the 23rd.
