Extra challenge for years 3 to 6

 

Harrow Athletics Virtual Championships

 

The Summer term usually sees Athletics as the main sport. Due to current restrictions in place, the school and borough won’t be able to hold the usual outdoor mass participation events.

 

This means we will have to use a virtual format.

 

This will involve a 50 metre sprint, a standing long jump and a standing chest push. Please see the attached document for advice on recording these scores.

All primary schools in Harrow will be invited to take part so you will be able to see how you compare against other children.

 

In order for your scores to be sent to the organiser, please send your results to your class teacher by Thursday June 25th
