Saturday Morning Athletics League.
Over the last 3 consecutive weeks a small group of eager children have been arriving at school (Yes, on a Saturday) to take part in Salford Primary Schools Spots Athletics League. At the start of our summer! Which you wouldn’t have known as two weeks were very wet, Mr. Jones drove the children in the Mini-bus whilst Miss Dean checked all were on board we set off to Lower Broughton Playing field.
Eight schools entered with Year 6 and Year 5 children having point’s races which add up for each schools total score, and guest races where any child can have a go at any event. Different events were 60 M and 80M Sprints, 55m Hurdles, 200M and 600M distance run, long jump, throw and relays.
Points accumulated over the 3 weeks and Mossfield finished 5th, the children had a great time mixing with other schools in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere making it a positive experience.
